NCORR's Community Development Office provides resources to assist communities in rebuilding smarter and stronger after major disasters. By creating affordable housing and strengthening infrastructure, storm impacted communities can become more resilient and prepare for future storms.
Many areas of the state had an affordable housing shortage that grew worse when hundreds of homes were damaged or destroyed by Hurricanes Florence and Matthew, as well as Tropical Storm Fred. Increasing the availability of affordable housing for low-and-moderate income families helps house those still recovering from these storms and increases safety and resiliency for future storms.
Infrastructure projects are a strategic bridge between acute disaster recovery and long-term resiliency measures. Recognizing the ongoing need to address infrastructure repairs and to enact projects that were identified in the State’s comprehensive, county-led planning process, the state has allocated additional funds to address community recovery and infrastructure needs.
