Governor Cooper Announces $12.2 Million Grant for Crisis Counseling for Hurricane Florence Survivors

North Carolina will receive a $12.2 million grant to expand crisis counseling services to Hurricane Florence survivors in 28 counties, Governor Roy Cooper announced last week. “Along with physical damage to homes and businesses, storms like Florence take an emotional toll,” Gov. Cooper said. “This grant will help meet the need for mental health services as North Carolinians work to rebuild.” The new $12.2 million grant is a continuation of an initial $3.5 million to fund the Hope 4 NC program. Hope 4 NC was created to address the behavioral health needs of those affected by Hurricane Matthew and now subsequent hurricanes. The program employs local licensed clinicians and professional counseling staff to connect directly with survivors in their communities. Counselors go door-to-door, provide counseling, and help connect adults and children to services — such as long-term counseling, housing supports, and other social services — that help sustain their recovery.
