Since their arrival in Eastern North Carolina in response to Hurricane Florence, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been working to get state and federal funds to those in need - but the deadline to apply is approaching.

FEMA has been helping out in individual cases, including providing home inspections and setting families up with temporary housing, as well overall funds, in the form of flood insurance and federal grants.

“It’s a huge undertaking,” Jann Tracey, FEMA external affairs specialist, said. “And when you consider that, the magnitude of it … that is a great accomplishment.”
