At Weinstein Construction, we are very excited to inform all our neighbors and friends that the California Earthquake Authority retrofitting grant program is opening back up on October 18, 2022, to take applications from Greater Los Angeles homeowners, and that Weinstein Construction remains an approved contractor for this program!

The Earthquake Brace + Bolt Program

The “Earthquake Brace + Bolt” (“EBB”) is a state-funded program that provides free grants of up to $3,000 to thousands of homeowners to subsidize their cost of seismically retrofitting their homes.  Since the EBB was established back in 2013, it has provided many thousands of homeowners with grants to have their homes retrofitted.

This is literally free money to homeowners

And if you are an eligible homeowner,

You cannot afford to miss out on this opportunity!


Moreover, those homeowners that have a household income at or below $72,080 can also qualify for additional, supplemental grants, which can potentially cover the entire cost of seismic retrofitting.  This is just like getting your home earthquake retrofitted, and having the Government pay for it!

How does the EBB program work?

The EBB program operates across hundreds of ZIP codes in the Greater Los Angeles region.  The eligible ZIP codes are chosen based upon seismic risk and concentration of older homes.  To see if your home is in one of the eligible EBB ZIP codes that have opened up, visit the California EBB Grant Website after October 18, 2022, to access the EBB program.

If you live in one of the ZIP codes listed on the EBB website, you will need to submit a simple EBB Grant Application.

Don’t delay and mark your calendar today for the registration opening date of October 18, 2022!  The EBB program is just waiting for eligible homeowners to complete an application!  In the words of Janiele Maffei, chief mitigation officer of the California Earthquake Authority:

 “Bolting houses to their foundations and bracing the crawl space walls can help Californians protect their families, their homes and their investments.  We’re pleased to extend additional support to income-eligible homeowners to help cover up to 100% of the cost of a seismic retrofit, and we encourage all eligible homeowners in EBB ZIP Codes to apply for funding now.”

Don’t miss this opportunity!  At Weinstein Construction, we are offering our own Homeowner Incentive Program, in conjunction with the EBB!  Most small homes can be retrofitted for about $3,000, and we will wait to get paid by the EBB, so there will be no money coming out of your pocket, and retrofitting your house will be free for you!  You don’t have to wait for the “Big One” to see if your home can withstand an earthquake, so call Weinstein Construction today at (800) 862-6582, so we can schedule you for a free inspection and estimate!
