Award Determination

Award Determination


Ver en español

The program will calculate your award once the following steps are completed:

  • Initial program eligibility determined
  • Duplication of benefits (DOB) funding verified
  • Required inspections completed
  • Environmental reviews performed

Awards are calculated based on multiple factors explained during earlier stages of the program process, including the:

  • Amount of funds needed to repair your home
  • Amount of funding already received from other sources for home repair (DOB)
  • Location of the project
  • Level of flooding
  • Structure type

To help determine your program award, you may receive pre-award documents. Once your award is determined, the program will send you a final award packet notifying you of an award offer, a Homeowner Grant Agreement (HOGA), appeal information and other items. For example, if your award is for the reconstruction of your home, program staff will provide information about available floorplan options based on your award.

You are encouraged to schedule a meeting with your award specialist to better understand the award being offered. Once you thoroughly review the award, you should either sign the HOGA or notify the program that you have decided to reject or appeal the award decision.

If your award documentation lists “Escrow Funds Owed,” you must pay the required escrow amount to the program immediately after signing your grant award. If you sign your award electronically via email or DocuSign, you should mail your escrow check after signing and returning your award agreement documents. Your project cannot move forward until the escrow funds are paid in full.

Escrow funds must be paid as a cashier’s check or money order made out to the North Carolina Office of Recovery and Resiliency. Personal checks will not be accepted. Checks should be mailed to:
