BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. -- FEMA is allotting another $1 million to help with Camp Fire recovery in Butte County.

FEMA has given assistance since President Trump declared a national emergency. Typically, the declaration calls for the federal government to cover 75% of the cost of the disaster but congressman in California rallied to get FEMA to cover 90% of the cost. The only other time FEMA has paid 90% was during 9-11 recovery.
