Homeowners can receive up to $3,000 for a seismic retrofit. Visit online to see if your property qualifies.

Registration is currently closed. You can sign up for updates.

A seismic retrofit is where the existing cripple wall is strengthened with bracing and bolting or only bolting depending on the house construction. The replacement of cripple wall framing and/or foundation replacement is not considered by the City of Oakland to be a retrofit.
