Help for Families

What’s Been Done So Far

Since October 2016, N.C. Emergency Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have been working with local communities to find short-term and long-term temporary housing for people displaced by Hurricane Matthew. A number of state and federal programs are helping eligible people find safe and secure housing while their damaged homes are repaired or rebuilt. Assistance may include grants for temporary housing, rental assistance and home repairs.

Homeowners, renters or business owners who sustained property damage from Hurricane Matthew and who have registered with FEMA, can check their status at any time.

Nearly 82,000 households applied for help through FEMA. More than $95 million in state and federal funds have been provided to help individuals, families and small business owners recover from Hurricane Matthew. The map and table below show the number of households who have registered for assistance and the total funding approved through FEMA’s Individual and Households Program.
