ReBuild NC Application Center in Bertie County to Close Nov. 29


Today, the ReBuild NC program announced that the application center in Bertie County is slated to close on Nov. 29, 2018. However, impacted homeowners in this county may still be eligible for assistance and are strongly encouraged to apply for Hurricane Matthew Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding through the ReBuild NC program. In order to qualify for assistance through ReBuild NC at this time, the home must have been damaged by Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

All individuals currently being served by the Bertie County Application Center will be able to maintain regular contact with program staff via phone and email. Homeowners are encouraged to dial 2-1-1 to speak to a program representative and schedule an appointment at another application center to complete an application, submit documentation or meet with an application specialist for in-person assistance. Additionally, individuals can email anytime with questions or concerns they may have about the program or their application.

Application specialists are available by appointment at the program’s application centers to assist individuals with completing and submitting a program application for CDBG-DR assistance for Hurricane Matthew related damages. On average, applications take about two hours to complete. A checklist of documents to bring to an appointment and more information on the application process can be found at

Receiving damage from Hurricane Florence, in addition to damage from Hurricane Matthew, will not prevent homeowners from receiving assistance for Hurricane Matthew damages through the ReBuild NC program. While long-term CDBG-DR funding is not yet available to Hurricane Florence victims, there are additional resources for recovery assistance available for those suffering damages only from Hurricane Florence, including FEMA assistance.
