Building resilient communities in North Carolina
Partnering with the North Carolina Office of Recovery and Resiliency (NCORR)
NCORR was created in October 2018 to execute multi-year recovery and resiliency projects and manage Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)—Disaster Recovery and CDBG—Mitigation funds. As a subcontractor, ICF is responsible for the implementation and program management of NCORR’s $25 million voluntary Strategic Buyout Program. We assist homeowners with the application process and help them get their funds.
We also provide management and oversight of relocation services that are cross cutting between NCORR’s Strategic Buyout Program, Homeowner Recovery Program, and Small Rental Repair Program. In addition, we provide applicant communication and outreach services. We build all materials for NCORR programming, public hearing support, translation services, ReBuild NC website development and maintenance, as well as social media and media marketing services.
Ensuring community preparedness
“In the intervening weeks between the training and now, I have been endlessly impressed with my interactions with the ICF field staff. We have a very solid group of people and a good core team here and I’m excited to continue the ramp-up of this program.”

Relocating to safer ground amidst COVID-19
In March 2020, the coronavirus pandemic threatened to disrupt NCORR progress with the Strategic Buyout Program. When in-person information sessions were suspended, we responded quickly and posted rollout details online and conducted virtual outreach.
