One of the primary missions of West Slope Foundation is to identify and meet the immediate and long-term needs of the Caldor Fire Survivors. We wish we could help everyone who was impacted by the wildland fire, but unfortunately there is not sufficient funding, so certain requirements have to be met to qualify for assistance.  The requirements are outlined below.

Applying for Survivor's  Assistance 

To qualify for West Slope Foundation Aid* Programs or Disaster Case Management assistance, all these requirements must be met: 

  • Disaster Related

  • 50% or more loss to home due to direct impact of the disaster (this does not include smoke, ash, or any other damage outside of fire) or your home was completely destroyed. This is verified by the El Dorado County Caldor Fire Structure Status map provided by the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department.

  • Home lost was primary residence.

  • Live(d) within the burn scar.


Submit one application per household.  You only need to fill out this application once.  If you have already filled out this form and need immediate assistance, please fill out the Immediate Needs Application.  A link is provided below.

*This excludes any non-disaster recovery programs.
