Press Release:

    Raleigh, N.C.     Governor Pat McCrory's request for federal disaster assistance to help individuals in Hertford County recover from Hurricane Matthew has been approved.

    "This additional assistance for Hertford County will help the people in these affected communities begin to recover and rebuild," said Governor McCrory. "We will continue to work with towns, cities and counties across North Carolina to provide any and all assistance necessary to recover from Hurricane Matthew."

    Residents of Hertford County had already been approved for federal public assistance to help support recovery efforts of local governments and non-profits. This approval means individuals are now also eligible to apply for assistance.

    With the addition of this county, 38 counties have now been approved for federal individual and public assistance and four counties have been approved for public assistance only. More than $61 million has already been approved for individuals who have been affected by the storm.

    The 38 counties currently eligible to apply for individual assistance, under the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Individual and Households Program, are: Beaufort, Bertie, Bladen, Brunswick, Camden, Chowan, Columbus, Craven, Cumberland, Currituck, Dare, Duplin, Edgecombe, Gates, Greene, Halifax, Harnett, Hertford, Hoke, Hyde, Johnston, Jones, Lee, Lenoir, Martin, Moore, Nash, Onslow, Pasquotank, Pender, Pitt, Robeson, Sampson, Tyrrell, Wake, Washington, Wayne and Wilson.

    The governor encouraged individuals and groups to help in the relief efforts by making a financial or other contribution. Monetary contributions to the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund for Hurricane Matthew can be made by texting NCRECOVERS to 30306 or by visiting NCDisasterRelief.org. This is one of the best ways to help fund long-term recovery efforts.
