Public Hearing Scheduled for Hurricane Matthew Recovery Funding

Post Date:08/22/2017 3:17 PM

(Fayetteville, N.C.) — The Fayetteville City Council will hold a public hearing on Monday, Aug. 28 at 7 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chamber, located at 433 Hay St, to discuss and consider Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding.

North Carolina Emergency Management, the Governor’s Office and the Department of Commerce have allocated approximately $34.7 million in CDBG-DR funding for projects in Fayetteville as part of the Hurricane Matthew recovery efforts.

The top priority is assisting low-to-moderate income families by addressing housing and support service needs. This includes projects to repair owner-occupied homes, rental housing and to provide shelter for the homeless. It is equally important to assist small businesses and farmers who are trying to get back on their feet and to rebuild community and support service facilities. 

Individuals desiring to speak must sign up before 5 p.m. on Aug. 28 by contacting the City Clerk’s Office at (910) 433-1989 or (910) 433-1312 or email pmegill@ci.fay.nc.us or sign up in person the day of the meeting in the Council Chamber from 6:30 to 6:55 p.m.
