Brace + Bolt Program

Brace + Bolt Program

California's Earthquake Brace + Bolt program offers homeowners up to $3,000 to help retrofit their homes in order to reduce potential damage from earthquakes.

Retrofitting makes a house more resistance to earthquake activity by bolting the house to its foundation and adding bracing around the perimeter of the crawl space.

The Brace + Bolt program has been expanded to the following ZIP codes: 90046, 90068, 91604, and 91601.

Houses that meet the criteria for the Earthquake Brace + Bolt program are typically:

  • Constructed before 1979.
  • Built on a level or low slope.
  • Constructed with a 4-foot (or less) cripple wall under the first floor.
  • Constructed with a cripple wall between 4 feet and 7 feet (requires an engineered solution).
  • On a raised foundation.
