The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services has announced the approval of $6,717 in reimbursements to help Trinity County cover the costs it incurred in conjunction with operating a Local Assistance Center following last year’s August Complex fire.
The reimbursements represent the state’s 75% share of the county’s $8,956 in costs related to operating the LAC that are eligible for reimbursement under the California Disaster Assistance Act following the state of emergency proclaimed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in response to the fire.
During its operations from Oct. 29 to Nov. 10, 2020, the LAC served 131 people.
