State Grants for Financially Distressed Local Governments

This program will provide grants of up to $1,000,000 for eligible local governments to provide short-term assistance with everyday operating expenses, such as general payroll, certain non-disaster-related vendor payments, and debt service. Grant funds can also be used to provide additional capacity for disaster recovery by funding up to two time-limited positions, contracting for disaster recovery services, and purchasing a vehicle.

State Revolving Loans for Temporary Cash Assistance to Local Government

This program will provide 0% interest loans of up to $2,000,000 for eligible local governments to assist with covering disaster-related expenses, while waiting for reimbursement from various federal disaster response, recovery, and resiliency programs. Approved local governments would repay the loan principal amount upon receipt of federal reimbursements.

If you are:

  • A county (under G.S. 153A-10) or an incorporated municipality (under G.S. 160A-1(2)) and
  • Designated under a major disaster declaration by the President of the United States under the Stafford Act (P.L. 93-288) as a result of Hurricane Florence (DR-4393)

Please review the Notice of Funds Available memo and complete the NCORR State Recovery Grants & Loans for Local Governments Application.

Both programs are ongoing. There is not a deadline for applications, but NCORR will stop taking applications once all funds are awarded.
