Earthquake Brace and Bolt Program (EBB)

Don’t wait for disaster to strike! Take proactive steps to retrofit your home and protect your loved ones.  Register now for the Earthquake Brace and Bolt Program.

The Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) program was developed by the California Earthquake Authority (CEA) and the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES).  EBB is a grant program that provides eligible California homeowners with up to $3,000 toward a residential seismic retrofit. The purpose is to help homeowners lessen the potential for damage to their house during an earthquake by “bracing” the crawl space, when necessary, and “bolting” the foundation to the house’s frame.  Retrofitting is important as it strengthens your home’s structural integrity, making it more resistant to damage during an earthquake. EBB has helped thousands of California homeowners complete retrofits and also offers an additional Supplemental Grant to help income-eligible homeowners pay for a seismic retrofit.
