Earthquake Brace + Bolt Retrofit Grant Program

You can strengthen your home and get up to a 25%* discount on your earthquake insurance premium.

You may register and then be selected to receive a unique opportunity: a $3,000 tax-free grant to help seismically retrofit your home through the 2020 Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) program.

Registration is open until March 19th for the chance to be one of the 4,400 homeowners randomly selected to receive an EBB grant this year.

And there is even more good news. Once you have retrofitted your home you will be eligible to receive a discount of up to 25%* on your CEA earthquake insurance premium.

Retrofitting a house according to current building codes will make it less vulnerable to sliding off its foundation in an earthquake. A licensed contractor can complete the work in a couple of days, and it typically costs between $3,000 and $7,000. If you are a skilled do-it-yourselfer, you may even be able to do the work on your own.

Please join the 10,000 California homeowners who have made their homes safer by completing an EBB seismic retrofit and lower the cost of their CEA earthquake insurance.

The number of retrofit grants is limited, and registration is only open for a short time. I urge you to register today, or to call the CEA at 1-877-232-4300 to get more information.
