Volusia County residents who need home repairs or insurance deductible payments due to damage caused by Hurricane Matthew may apply for assistance through the county’s Community Assistance Division.
Applications for the Hurricane Matthew Disaster Recovery Program are available online at www.volusia.org/housing and at these locations:
•Volusia County Community Assistance office, 110 Rich Ave., DeLand, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday
•Disaster Recovery Center at the Florida Department of Health, 1845 Holsonback Drive, Daytona Beach from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday
•Volusia County regional libraries in Daytona Beach, DeLand, Deltona, Ormond Beach and Port Orange during regular branch hours
The disaster recovery program is funded by Volusia County’s State Housing Initiatives Partnership program to assist residents who own and occupy their home and have already applied for FEMA assistance. If residents have homeowner insurance, they must have already filed a claim.
Applicants must live in Volusia County, but not within the city limits of Deltona or Daytona Beach. Residents applying for assistance for manufactured homes are eligible only if the home was constructed after June 1994 and the resident owns the land where the home is located.
Applicants’ household income may not exceed 120 percent of the area median income.
