Chatham County residents and business owners are now eligible to apply for Individual Disaster Assistance for uninsured/underinsured damage and losses resulting from Hurricane Florence.

To apply, eligible applicants should:

  • Go online
  • Call 800-621-3362 (voice, 711, or VRS) or 800-462-7585 (TTY) between 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. local time seven days a week until further notice. Multilingual operators are available.

For those with homeowner’s or flood insurance policies, applicants will need to file an insurance claim before applying for disaster assistance.

For qualified homeowners and renters, disaster grants help pay for basic repairs to make a home habitable, temporary rental assistance, and serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance or other sources. To be eligible, the storm damage and losses must have occurred as a result of Hurricane Florence between Sept. 7 and Sept. 29, 2018.

Disaster assistance may include low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration for businesses of all sizes (including landlords), private nonprofit organizations, homeowners and renters. Next to insurance, SBA serves as the primary source of money for the long-term rebuilding of disaster-damaged private property.
