Carteret County is a great place to live, work and raise a family. However, when a disaster, such as Hurricane Florence hits, it has a devastating impact on our community. The needs are great and the recovery efforts will be ongoing for many years.
When Hurricane Florence hit in 2018 over 6,000 people were effected. Over a year later many homes are still damaged and many of our community members remain displaced.
CLTRA provides assistance to survivors who sustained damage or loss as a result of a disaster effecting the Carteret County area.
