Earthquake Brace + Bolt Program Expands in 2017

Licensed contractors needed to perform seismic retrofits

SACRAMENTO – Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB), an earthquake retrofit program that provides a financial incentive for homes built before 1979, has expanded to over 30 cities throughout California. EBB will offer homeowners up to $3,000 for seismic retrofits, which presents additional work opportunities for contractors.

More than 95 percent of homeowners participating in EBB rely on the program’s directory to hire skilled contractors for their retrofit projects. The searchable directory provides a list of licensed contractors trained for seismic retrofitting. Qualified workers can participate in the program at no charge and be added to a searchable contractor list by completing the online Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) education training. In addition to being added to the directory, participants will be eligible to receive free EBB marketing materials, including brochures, job site checklists, yard signs, and phone support if questions arise about the program.

Contractors experienced in seismic retrofitting are being sought for this work. Those contractors who want to participate should register and take the free online FEMA training as soon as possible so they can get on the program's list of contractors. Homeowner registration ended February 27, 2017.

EBB's 2017 program is being offered in the following ZIP codes:
