The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Coastal Management (DCM) is awarding grants to 25 communities for technical assistance in risk assessment and resilience planning work. A total of $675,000 will be made available for the completion of Phases 1 and 2 of the new NC Resilient Coastal Communities Program (RCCP). DCM will contract directly with selected contractors to provide direct technical assistance services to localities. For more information on the RCCP, visit https://bit.ly/3IBP0Cz.
Hyde County/Ocracoke Village is one of the communities selected to participate and has received a grant from the Resilient Coastal Communities Program to conduct a study that will help the community be more prepared to withstand, respond to and recover from weather or other disruptions.
