Who is a California wildfire affected individual?

Relief is extended to any participant whose principal residence and/or place of employment on October 8, 2017 was in one of the counties identified for individual assistance by FEMA because of the California wildfires.  It also allows participants who do not live in affected areas to qualify for relief if they have parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, dependent or spouse who had a principal residence or place of employment in the disaster area on that date.
