TEMPORARY HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES   

If you’ve lost your home due to the Oak Fire, it is possible to live temporarily in a Recreational Vehicle (RV) for a maximum of five (5) years while you are working with your insurance company and while you are rebuilding or installing a permanent residence.  

Temporary Off-Site Housing: Individuals can temporarily live in an RV on approved property in Mariposa County while permanent housing is pursued. If the new property was not impacted by the Oak Fire, individuals can apply for this opportunity immediately. 

Applications and forms for this option can be found here OR can be picked up in person at the Building Department at 5100 Bullion Street. 

 

Temporary On-Site Housing: Individuals can temporarily live in an RV on their impacted property while permanent housing is pursued, only after the site has been cleared by the county. 


The first step in this process is to restore power on-site. In order to do this, you will need to apply for a Blue Tag and/or establish temporary power through PG&E. To apply for a Blue Tag, please contact the Building Department at 209-966-3934 or visit them at 5100 Bullion Street. If you need temporary power through PG&E, please visit yourprojects.pge.com or call 1-877-743-7782. Restoring power cannot be completed until after Phase 2 Debris Removal Operations are fully complete. 

Once power is restored, applications and forms for temporary on-site housing can be submitted. They can be found here OR can be picked up in person at the Building Department at 5100 Bullion Street.
