Mariposa County will use this information to request additional assistance (specifically for individuals) from state and federal partners. If significant damage and a need for financial aid can be proven, the chance of approval for funding will increase.

At this time, President Joe Biden has included Mariposa County in an Emergency Declaration. This type of declaration is limited to immediate and short-term assistance essential to save lives and protect public health, safety, and property. After reviewing some of the reports and requests, President Biden declared a Major Disaster Declaration for Merced, Sacramento, and Santa Cruz counties.

President Biden may add other counties as conditions allow for better damage assessments. If FEMA offers individual assistance for our community, Mariposa County will share that information with our community at that time.
