On Saturday February 9th, residents in the Cape Fear region can get help filing an appeal or reconsideration request with FEMA. Hurricane Florence survivors have the right to appeal FEMA’s decision to deny them benefits or can request reconsideration from FEMA if they feel they are entitled to more benefits than they received. The right to appeal is up to 60 days after the date on the denial letter.
A clinic will be held on Saturday, February 9th, at Cape Fear Community College located at 411 North Front Street in Wilmington. Volunteers will be available to help families complete appeal requests. Morning hours for the clinic are 9:30 am to 12 pm. Afternoon hours are from 12:30 pm to 4 pm.
