About CRMP

Formed in August 2011, the California Residential Mitigation Program (CRMP) was established to carry out mitigation programs to provide grants and other types of assistance and incentives to homeowners of single-family residential buildings (one to four dwelling units) in California who wish to retrofit their houses to mitigate against earthquake damage.

CRMP is a joint-exercise-of-powers entity formed by its members, the California Earthquake Authority, a public instrumentality of the State of California (CEA), and the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, (Cal OES). CRMP is a legally separate entity from its members.

Oversight is provided by the governing board, consisting of two members appointed by the CEA and two members appointed by Cal OES.  Program management is headed by CRMP’s executive director, with program and administrative support provided by CEA employees and contracted staff.
