Brunswick County Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD)
Please see the information below for resources related to damage incurred by Hurricane Isaias. Additional resources may be available through VOAD; CLICK HERE to learn more.
Damage Assessment: Self-Reporting
Residents of Brunswick County who received damage as a result of Hurricane Isaias can self-report their damages by CLICKING HERE. Crews will be working throughout the county and towns conduction damage assessments that are used to compile data that is then used by the State of North Carolina to determine if the damages from Hurricane Isaias have reached a level that would qualify Brunswick County for any Federal Assistance. Federal Assistance can be either Public Assistance (PA) relating to infrastructure and government services (as well as non-profit agencies) or Individual Assistance (IA) which is assistance that directly assists the residents of the county. Federal Programs and funding are typically not made available without these damage assessments. Homeowners will still need to report damages to their individual insurance companies and will still have to apply to any programs that become available.
Brunswick County residents in unincorporated areas should have vegetative Isaias debris ready for pick-up no later than Sunday, August 30, 2020. Click Here for more info.
