As the only permanent agency in the tri-county area whose mission is to rebuild owner occupied homes, WARM has been very busy since Hurricane Florence.
Check out this video to see what we’ve been up to.
Our staff members have been spending a lot of time helping homeowners in the Cape Fear region navigate the FEMA application process. Like most assistance programs, it is designed to help those who really need it, so important documentation is required. An unintended consequence is that the process is cumbersome and confusing to people who are not familiar with it.
We have assessed dozens of homes since Florence hit and every one of them had been denied at least once by FEMA. We are helping them appeal; some of the award funds designated for home repair will be used to purchase building materials that WARM volunteers will use to rebuild the home.
Here are a few tips to help anyone who has been denied.
Your best bet is to visit a FEMA Disaster Resource Center (DRC). Bring paperwork with you! The agents are very helpful and will explain where you are in the process and what to do next. Click here to plug in your zip code to find the nearest office.
