The State of NC has received $198 million in Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding for Hurricane Matthew recovery. Eighty percent of that funding will go to the 4 hardest hit counties (Edgecombe, Wayne, Robeson, and Cumberland). That $158.4 million will be distributed to those counties based on the number of homes substantially damaged. Edgecombe County's share is 18% or $28.5 million. Use of the funds must be according to the plan the State submitted to the US Department of HUD. The majority of the funding is to be used for housing related activities.
