All homeowners impacted by Hurricane Matthew are strongly encouraged to apply for assistance, regardless of if you believe you are eligible for assistance or have already completed repairs. The program is designed to assist homeowners in completing remaining repair work, rebuilding significantly damaged homes, or repaying homeowners who have started or completed repairs.

Please know that the ReBuild NC program requires all homeowners to disclose any previously received federal assistance, as these funds may be considered a “Duplication of Benefits” by the program. Federal law prohibits any individual from receiving a "duplication of benefits" - a term used to describe receiving funds from two sources for the same purpose. Duplication of benefits includes assistance from FEMA, the Small Business Administration (SBA), the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), private and NFIP flood insurance, or any other source for which funds are designated toward the rehabilitation or reconstruction of an applicant's flood-damaged home.
