Camp Fire Relief Fund
Through the Camp Fire Relief Fund, in the six months after the fire, we awarded 210 grants for relief and response totaling more than $3.6 million. The money was given to organizations and government agencies working directly with Camp Fire survivors, often in the form of direct assistance.
The Camp Fire Relief Fund grant program closed April 2019. NVCF's assistance continues with the Butte Strong Fund.
