Public Assistance Applicant Briefings for Bladen & Chowan

Spread the love

Houses of worship may apply

The state of North Carolina has received a federal disaster declaration for Public Assistance (PA) Category A thru G for 2 additional counties (Bladen and Chowan) in eastern NC bringing the total to 28 counties.
The first step in the process is for all potentially eligible Public Assistance (PA) Applicants {e.g. local governments, state agencies, private non-profits (PNPs), tribal organizations} in declared counties to attend an Applicant Briefing at one of the dates/locations listed below. At the briefing, potential applicants will receive an overview of the Public Assistance program/process, any event-specific details, and instructions on how to submit the “Request for Public Assistance (RPA),” including PNP documents, the online PA Grants Portal.

The new PA Grants Portal will offer the Applicant the opportunity to review, manage, sign (e-signature), submit documentation for project worksheets, and provide full transparency of project status. The RPA is the application required to become an eligible applicant in order to receive reimbursement for eligible response and recovery costs incurred as a direct result of Hurricane Dorian. For those unable to attend the Applicant Briefing, they may inquire about the PA Grants Portal by emailing
Houses of Worship owned or operated by private nonprofits organizations may now be eligible applicants for financial assistance for repair or replacement of facilities damaged or destroyed as a result of Hurricane Dorian.
