NC extends STEP program

LUMBERTON, NC (WMBF) - More families in North Carolina will soon be able to return home while they work to rebuild from Hurricane Florence thanks to the extension of the STEP program.

NC Gov. Roy Cooper said The Sheltering and Temporary Essential Power program will extend to add more than 200 additional single-family homes in 12 counties including Robeson County.

The original program wrapped up earlier this month and repaired more than 2,100 homes.

NC survivors who still face long-term housing issues are urged to participate in the Disaster Case Management Program.

Those interested can contact (910) 672-6175.
