A total of 12,000 homeowners and around 3,500 renters suffered millions in damages during Hurricane Florence in 2018 and according to MSN, each homeowner is still waiting for the money needed for repairs and assistance.

The State of North Carolina recently received a $542.6 million grant. The grant was given in order to help residents with disaster relief efforts and it was provided by the federal government.

The members of the federal government who provide disaster relief grants highlighted in a press release in the first week of March that the Federal Register also sent tips on how that money can be used. The suggestions were published in the form of notice 500 days after the hurricane touched down.

Laura Hogshead, the agency’s chief operating officer, said they are needing applicants to proceed. She also said permission from the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development is mandatory.

“We just need applications to move through the process,” Hogshead said. “We need permission from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development."
