The Citizen Advisory Committee is a 15-member committee established by NCORR and the State Disaster Recovery Task Force to increase transparency in the use of CDBG-MIT funds, obtain public comment and input on proposed mitigation activities, and serve as an ongoing public forum to inform CDBG-MIT projects and programs. Committee members include representatives from areas of North Carolina defined by HUD as “Most Impacted and Distressed” by hurricanes Matthew and/or Florence, as well as representatives with relevant technical and industry experience.
In addition to mitigation initiatives, NCORR administers programs that include long-term disaster recovery, strategic buyout, resiliency, community development and affordable housing. Learn more about NCORR programs at: https://www.rebuild.nc.gov/.
