Volusia County Offering Hurricane Matthew Assistance


Daytona Beach, FL - The county is now accepting applications from income-eligible homeowners affected by Hurricane Matthew.

The program opened up last week, making funds available to replace damaged mobile or manufactured homes on rented or owned lots.

Funds will also be available to repair or reconstruct damaged single-family homes.

These funds came from a Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) grant worth over $3 million dollars awarded through the Department of Economic Opportunity and an additional $200,000 from Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) funds.

There are two ways that homeowners can apply for assistance. They can visit the county's page regarding Hurricane Matthew housing, or they can pick up an application packet.

Application packets can be picked up at one of the following locations:

  • Volusia County Community Assistance Office, 110 W. Rich Avenue, DeLand
  • Volusia County Human Services, 123 W. Indiana Avenue, Room 1010, DeLand; 775 Harley Strickland Blvd., Suite 104, Orange City; 717 Canal Street, New Smyrna Beach.
  • All branches of the Volusia County Public Library System. You can find locations and hours by clicking here.

Completed applications are being accepted by mail or in-person at the address listed in the application packet.

Residents in need of assistance must be able to document that the home was damaged because of the storm and meet federal income-eligibility requirements.

Additional restrictions do apply, Community Assistance staff will work with residents to process applications and determine eligibility.

For more information, you can visit the county's page on Hurricane Matthew assistance or you can call (386) 736-5955.
