An initial distribution of $500 per household is being made from the Thomas Fire and Flood Fund by United Way of Ventura County through the Red Cross for those whose residence was destroyed by the fire or damaged so as not to be habitable. If you have not already done so you should meet with Red Cross case managers at the service center to determine eligibility for funding.
You should provide proof this was your primary residence at the time of the fire. This is the address you use on your federal tax return, your voter registration, your driver’s license, or other photo identification, and your utility bills.
The Red Cross Service Center at the Ventura County Credit Union closed Friday, January 12. Clients will be able to obtain assistance at the local Chapter, 836 Calle Plano, Camarillo and should call the caseworker referral line (805) 504-5263 for more information.
