HURRICANE FLORENCE

North Carolina is waiting on guidance from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on appropriated CDBG-DR funds to help with long-term Hurricane Florence housing recovery.

Disaster Case Management

Those affected by Hurricane Florence may seek help through Disaster Case Management. Disaster Case Managers work with survivor families to understand their experience related to the disaster, identify assistance already received, and determine the remaining disaster-related needs. To contact the Disaster Case Management service provider, please email DCMNC@Endeavors.org

HURRICANE MATTHEW

The application deadline for single-family assistance programs, including housing repair reimbursement, single-family homeowner rehabilitation/repair, single-family homeowner reconstruction, mobile home repair, mobile home replacement, and flood insurance assistance, was May 31, 2019. ReBuild NC is unable to accept applications for these programs after the deadline.

Application information for the following programs will be available soon:

  • Homeowner Buyout: If your home was severely damaged, is not in a FEMA buyout program, and is in an area that is an eligible buyout area (program representatives can provide this information), you may be able to voluntarily sell your home at pre-disaster fair market value and move to a safer location.
  • Temporary Rental Assistance: If you were displaced from your home as a direct result of Hurricane Matthew and are participating in a CDBG-DR program, ReBuild NC may provide you with a short-to-medium-term rental.
  • Small Rental Assistance: This program may help landlords repair rental homes with fewer than eight units.
  • Multi-Family Rental Assistance: This program may provide gap financing to repair rental housing in the most impacted communities and may create new multi-family affordable housing.
