WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) applauded President Trump for granting a disaster declaration for North Carolina and ordering federal aid to supplement state and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by Hurricane Isaias.
Federal funding is available to state and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by Hurricane Isaias in Beaufort, Bertie, Brunswick, Carteret, Chowan, Columbus, Craven, Hertford, Hyde, Jones, New Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, Pender, and Pitt Counties.
“Many coastal communities in North Carolina are still recovering from Hurricane Isaias, adding to the toll of damage from past storms that have hit our shores,” said Senator Tillis. “Helping our cities and towns affected by any disaster that crosses North Carolina’s coast is a top priority of mine and I will always fight to ensure North Carolina has the resources it needs to recover. I want to thank President Trump for his continued assistance in recovering from these storms.”
