The Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) has released another round of Listos California Grants for outreach and education efforts to under-resourced communities that are disproportionately impacted when a disaster strikes.
These grant funds would provide vulnerable communities that are disproportionally impacted by devastating wildfires, earthquakes and other disasters the information they need to be prepared, respond to and recover from emergencies.
Every Californian, regardless of age, ability, income or language, deserves culturally competent education to prepare for earthquakes, floods, and the immediate threat of wildfires. Thanks to an investment of public funds by Governor Gavin Newsom and state lawmakers, Listos California has worked with communities across the state to boost resiliency, provide new accessible in-language information and advance a new culture of disaster preparedness. Anchored at Cal OES, Listos California reached millions of Californians with low incomes, disabilities and language barriers, older adults, and other highly vulnerable populations from since 2019.
