After the Storm

Listed below are Resources from multiple sources that the office has been made aware of. If you have any additional information that would be helpful to our members, please share by email or on our Facebook Page

The NCLBCG reminds North Carolinians of the following: 

• Any project quoted at $30,000 or more requires a valid NC general contractors license. 

• Projects less than $30,000 do not require a license. 

However, hiring a NC licensed general contractor may offer security in knowing that you are dealing with a legitimate contractor who is authorized to engage in construction or repairs. 

Citizens can verify if the contractor is properly licensed by: 1) searching on the NCLBGC’s website at; ;

2) calling the NCLBGC at (800)220-7185; or 

3) downloading the Board’s free mobile app for Apple and Android devices by entering “NCLBGC SEARCH” in the search feature. 

Additional information is available at or by calling (800) 220-7185 or (919) 571-4183.

FEMA Declaration - North Carolina Hurricane Florence (DR-4393)

The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced that federal disaster assistance has been made available to the state of North Carolina to supplement state, tribal and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by Hurricane Florence beginning on September 7, 2018, and continuing.

The President's action makes federal funding available to affected individuals in Beaufort, Brunswick, Carteret, Craven, New Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, and Pender counties. Assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster.

Federal funding is also available to the state, tribal 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 Florence in Beaufort, Brunswick, Carteret, Craven, New Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, and Pender Counties for debris removal and emergency protective measures (Categories A and B), including direct federal assistance, under the Public Assistance program counties.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures for all counties and Indian Tribes throughout the state.

Albert Lewis has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area. Lewis said additional designations may be made at a later date if warranted by the results of further damage assessments. 

Individuals and business owners who sustained losses in the designated area can begin applying for assistance by registering online at or by calling 1-800-621-3362. Disaster assistance applicants, who have a speech disability or hearing loss and use TTY, should call 1-800-462-7585 directly; for those who use 711 or Video Relay Service (VRS), call 1-800-621-3362. The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. (local time) seven days a week until further notice. 

From Carteret County Emergency Services

In order to assist Carteret County citizens to begin the rebuilding process, the Western Carteret Planning and Development Office will resume normal business hours at 8am Wednesday, September 19th, 2018.

On Thursday, September 20th, 2018 the Beaufort Planning and Development Office will resume normal business hours at 8am.

Carteret County citizens are reminded that permits are still required for all work that would normally require a permit during non-emergency conditions.
