[ARCHIVED] Impacted by Hurricane Florence? Help is Still Available.

Hurricane Florence Help Sized

People impacted by Hurricane Florence in 2018 may still have opportunities to receive assistance on a variety of levels through the Palmetto Disaster Recovery Office.

According to Antonia Manning, Resource Coordinator for Palmetto Disaster Recovery Office, the SC Disaster Recovery Office established Palmetto Disaster Recovery in order to conduct disaster case management for South Carolina residents affected by Hurricane Florence. The Palmetto Disaster Recovery Office focuses its efforts on meeting disaster-caused unmet needs for citizens in the eight FEMA Individual Assistance declared counties of Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Georgetown, Horry, Marion, and Marlboro. 

Palmetto Disaster Recovery has two offices in Horry and Marion Counties to serve residents impacted by Hurricane Florence in 2018: 

-- The Horry County office is located at 1021 3rd Avenue, Conway, SC 29526. (803) 622-8041

-- The Marion office is located at 1003 East Godbold Street, Marion SC 29571. (803) 609-1164

-- The headquarters facility is located at 632 Rosewood Drive, Columbia, SC 29501. 

-- All offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. 

Disaster Case Managers help guide eligible citizens through the process of developing and carrying out an individualized Recovery Plan that identifies resources, support services, goals, and step-by-step actions. They help citizens find solutions to long-term recovery needs such as housing, financial services, health needs, and emotional or spiritual well-being. 

Case Managers will also conduct follow-up activities to monitor citizens’ progress and they serve as an advocate for their citizens.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded millions of dollars to support South Carolina’s recovery from Hurricane Florence. These funds are provided through HUD’s Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program and address damaged housing needs for the most vulnerable citizens in the eight FEMA Individual Assistance declared counties most impacted and distressed by Hurricane Florence.
