PITTSBORO, NC — FEMA has notified the North Carolina Governor’s Office that an extension of one month has been granted for residents, businesses, and others in declared counties to apply for Hurricane Florence relief. The deadline to apply for physical property damage assistance is now December 13, 2018, at midnight.

“This action is greatly appreciated since Chatham County was just added to the FEMA disaster list a few days ago,” said Dan LaMontagne, interim county manager.

The extension to December 13. 2018 covers applications for FEMA disaster assistance and Small Business Administration (SBA) low-interest loans for homeowners, businesses, nonprofits, churches and other organizations. However, the deadline to return SBA economic injury applications remains June 14, 2019.

To apply for FEMA assistance, visit online or call toll-free 1-800-621-3362 (voice, 711, or VRS), or 800-462-7585 (TTY) between 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. EST seven days a week until further notice. Multilingual operators are available

For more information on SBA low-interest loans and its application process, visit the Disaster Loan Assistance site. Note that homeowners also can get very low-interest loans through the SBA to help rebuild or repair homes damaged by Hurricane Florence.
