Funds Offered to Aid in Repairing Homes Damaged by Hurricane Ian in 2022
The United States Department of Agriculture has announced a grant program to help homeowners repair their homes damaged by Hurricane Ian in 2022. The Rural Disaster Home Repair Grant Program will provide funding of up to $40,675 directly to eligible homeowners to help them with repair expenses.
Reginald Speight, the North Carolina State Director for the USDA, has stated that the program is available to those who have been impacted by the hurricane in North Carolina’s presidentially declared disaster areas. Eligible homeowners must also have a household income that falls within the program’s income limit and live in a rural area.
According to Speight, the Biden-Harris Administration and USDA are committed to providing resources to rural North Carolina communities to rebuild their homes and lives. The Rural Disaster Home Repair Grant Program aims to do just that by providing funds for repairing homes damaged by Hurricane Ian.
The grant can also be used to prepare a site for a manufactured home or relocate a manufactured home. To apply, eligible homeowners should contact [email protected] or visit www.rd.usda.gov/nc for more information.
In summary, the Rural Disaster Home Repair Grant Program provides financial assistance to eligible homeowners who have been affected by Hurricane Ian in 2022.
