The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is the replacement program to help low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices. More information can be found here.

Fire Season & Other Disaster Preparedness: Listos CA offers several disaster preparedness toolkits in a variety of languages - please check them out and get prepared before disaster strikes. You can check out your air quality here or here. Please also look at the County's Office of Emergency Services webpage for more information about how the county - and you - can prepare for emergencies. Firewise has plenty of resources for you and your community too. Virginia Tech’s Recovery Effort After Adult and Child Trauma (R.E.A.A.C.T.) Team created a helpful Guide to Fire Safety, Prevention, and Recovery. (Please note some resources mentioned in the document are Virginia-based only.) Also check out resources through Plumas County Fire Safe Council, the California Dept of Forestry and Fire Protection, and CalFire's Ready for Wildfire. CalOES offers MyHazards, a tool to discover hazards in your area (earthquake, flood, fire, and tsunami) and learn steps to reduce personal risk, and here's a link on how to prepare and deal with pets for disasters like wildfires. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has a disaster checklist here. For one of our 2021 SRP virtual programs we also did a skit with Owlbert and Scared Squirrel about wildfire prevention.
