ReBuild NC Holds Public Hearing Tuesday On Hurricane Funds

ReBuild NC, the state’s long-term disaster recovery program, will hold two public hearings to receive public comments on a draft action plan for spending $168 million in Community Development Block Grant–Mitigation funding allocated to North Carolina by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Federal guidelines require that the funds be used to implement community projects that will reduce future losses in areas impacted by hurricanes Matthew and Florence. The state held public hearings in Lumberton, Tarboro and New Bern last month as part of a previous public comment period to obtain initial feedback on development of the draft plan.

As part of the current comment period, two public hearings are planned to receive feedback on the draft mitigation action plan.

The local hearing is being held at the Goldsboro City Council Chambers, 200 N. Center Street, on Tuesday, December 3rd.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m. People who would like to provide comments at the hearings will be given three minutes to speak. Those wishing to speak are encouraged to bring a written copy of their comments to the hearing. Anyone needing special accommodations at a public hearing should call 984-833-4344 or send an email to: [email protected].

Copies of the draft mitigation action plan in English and Spanish are available online at: Public comments on the draft plan may be submitted by email to: [email protected]. Written comments may also be submitted by mail to: Mitigation Action Plan, P.O. Box 110465, Durham, NC 27709.
