San Bernardino County residents can receive up to $500 for snow removal after storms

San Bernardino County residents are now eligible to be reimbursed up to $500 for your property’s snow removal costs.

Residents are typically responsible for removing snow and berms from their private property. But due to “unprecedented snowfall” from recent storms, unincorporated county residents and business owners are eligible
be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses incurred by hiring a private vendor or renting snow removal equipment.

Costs eligible for reimbursement include snow removal from private property, driveways, sidewalks, and private roads. The rebate is one-time only and limited to one applicant per property/address or business and is limited to work done on or after February 22.

The program is not available for vacant homes, vacant vacation rental properties, or unimproved parcels.

All removal work must be completed by May 1 and claims must be filed with the county by May 10.

The San Bernardino Mountains have been especially hard hit by recent back-to-back storms that have blanketed the region in record snowfall, trapping residents, closing businesses and roads, and making it difficult for emergency personnel to reach people in issues.
