About DRNC's Disaster Recovery Project:

How does Disability Rights NC help survivors with disabilities?

Disability Rights Disaster Recovery Project has a team of two people who provide advocacy, information and referrals, technical assistance and resources to people with disabilities and their families who have been impacted by a disaster, such as a hurricane or flood. We work with allies, and other organizations to assist disaster-impacted individuals with disabilities.  We provide real-time assistance to people with disabilities seeking assistance with immediate and urgent disaster-related needs during a federally declared disaster. We also monitor shelters during a disaster to check on people with disabilities to advocate for them and protect their rights.

Helping North Carolinians prepare for future storms with Community Development Block Grant Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) funds:

In 2018, the US Congress created Community Development Block Grant Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) funds to help states impacted by disasters that happened form 2015 - 2017.

Local governments, businesses, residents, and other community members are encouraged to share feedback on how CDBG-MIT funds can help the most people and protect the most at-risk areas. Submit your comments to publiccomments@rebuild.nc.gov. Learn more at rebuild.nc.gov
