North Carolina Emergency Management's Recovery section works with local and federal government agencies to help individuals and communities recover from disaster.
The Individual Assistance program helps those families and singles whose homes have been damaged or destroyed by a storm to secure safe, decent and sanitary housing. Individual Assistance representatives also help small business owners to restore their properties. The Public Assistance program works with local governments to clear debris along the roads and restore public infrastructure following a disaster. The Hazard Mitigation program works with individuals and local governments to reduce the future impacts of natural hazards on people and property by relocating or altering existing structures. The Disaster Housing program works with eligible individuals and families to repair or replace homes that were damaged or destroyed in a federal- or state-declared disaster. Funding for the program is provided through a special appropriation from the N.C. General Assembly through the Crisis Housing Assistance Fund for critical unmet needs.
The Disaster Reservist program provides on-call specialized staffing support to supplement the above programs to help communities as they respond to emergencies and recover from disasters.
