FAYETTEVILLEBeginning Monday, Jan. 29, the hours for the ReBuild NC Recovery Center in Cumberland County will be Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The application center is located at the Department of Social Services building, 1225 Ramsey St.

Cumberland County and City of Fayetteville residents who sustained damage to their homes during Hurricane Matthew may be eligible for additional financial help through Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds if they qualify under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s low-to-moderate income requirements.

To apply for funds, residents must call 211 to set up an appointment with an application specialist.

Funds will assist residents with housing repairs, homeowner reimbursement and other housing-related needs. See the attached “Available Programs” document for a detailed listing of assistance programs available. For more information, visit 

During their appointment, application specialists guide residents through the full application process. Applicants can expect to spend two hours completing their application during their appointment.

Applicants will need to bring as many of the following items as they can to their appointment:

  • Photo ID
  • Proof of residency and proof of residency during Hurricane Matthew
  • Photos of damage
  • Tax return or last three pay stubs
  • Proof of ownership
  • Insurance payments
  • Copies of other assistance received
  • Proof of current mortgage payments.

A checklist of all these items is attached.

The application process is the first step in applying for housing-recovery assistance. Once all the required information and documents are provided, each person’s file will be reviewed for eligibility.

This assistance is made possible by North Carolina’s approximately $237 million in CDBG-DR funding, awarded by the HUD.
