Hurricane Florence Recovery

If your home was damaged:

Home damaged by Hurricane Florence in September 2018? 

Homeowners who live in one of the 27 designated counties and meet certain income requirements may be eligible for additional financial assistance with repairs if they were not already paid for by FEMA or covered by insurance.

If you are in need of, or are receiving, behavioral health care:

  • If you are uninsured or are a Medicaid beneficiary, you can access care by calling your regional behavioral health Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organization (LME/MCO).
  • SAMHSA has a Disaster Distress Helpline at 1-800-985-5990 that is available year-round, 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide immediate crisis counseling for people who are experiencing emotional distress related to natural or human-caused disasters.
