STEP 2: ELIGIBILITY REVIEW

Once your application, forms, and all required supporting documentation are submitted, the Program will begin reviewing your application to determine if it meets eligibility requirements. During this step, your Case Manager may reach out to you if there are questions about your application responses or if additional documentation is needed to support your application.

  • Your home must have been damaged as a direct result of Hurricane Florence and/or Hurricane Matthew.
  • You must have owned the damaged home at the time of the disaster (Hurricane Matthew on October 8, 2016, and/or Hurricane Florence on September 14, 2018), and you must still own the home.
  • You must have occupied the damaged home as a primary residence at the time of the disaster.
