Hurricane Florence Disaster Response
The General Assembly has appropriated disaster recovery funds to help implement BMPs that will address the impacts of Hurricane Florence.
Florence – Watershed Recovery/Stream Debris Removal Needs (Including requests for State match for EWP) – Use to request state assistance with stream debris removal and other watershed recovery needs related to Hurricane Florence. Units of government that have submitted a request for Emergency Watershed Protection Program (EWP) assistance should also submit a request for state assistance to cover the non-federal cost share for those projects. Subject to available funds, state funds not needed for EWP match may be used to address needs on sites not approved for EWP.
