See If You Qualify

Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) helps homeowners strengthen their home and protect against earthquake damage by offering qualified homeowners a grant of up to $3,000 toward a building code-compliant earthquake retrofit. EBB is also offering a Supplemental Grant to homeowners with a household annual income of $72,080 or less as funding permits. An EBB retrofit is specifically for homes with a crawl space beneath the first floor.

New ZIP Codes added to EBB every year
Even if your house hasn’t qualified in the past, search again. We’ve added 126 new ZIP Codes to the current EBB Program.

You may be eligible to apply for an EBB grant if (among other criteria):

  • You own and live in the house you would like to retrofit.
  • You live in one of the EBB program areas, which are designated by ZIP Code.
  • Your house was built before 1980.
  • Your house has a raised foundation, or crawl space under your house. Crawl-Space.jpg
  • Your house is built on level ground or a slight slope.
  • You have not already completed a "brace and bolt" earthquake retrofit.​

EBB program registration is open for 30 days once per year. When open, you can complete the registration form online or request a paper registration form. You will be asked questions about your house, and your answers will determine if your home qualifies for an EBB retrofit grant.
