Northern California is a wonderful place to live. We’ve had our fair share of floods, drought, and fires. Often running multiple National Dislocated Worker Grants(NDWG) concurrently. The largest NDWG project was in response to the Camp Fire. The Camp Fire of November 2018 was the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history and the most expensive natural disaster in the world in 2018 in terms of insured losses.
