May 17 is the deadline to apply for the latest round of grants from a state fund created to assist public school students and employees recovering from Hurricane Florence.

The focus FAST NC (Florence Aid to Students and Teachers, North Carolina) will be on the 34 counties, including Columbus, that have been declared federal disaster areas as a result of the damage from Hurricane Florence. Priority will be given to school materials, supplies, and resources that aid students in being prepared for instruction and aid teachers in the restoration of a high-quality learning environment. FAST NC funds are not intended to address needs that are covered by insurance, or county, state, or federal governments.

Entities eligible to receive FAST NC funds include North Carolina public school districts and public charter schools who seek to aid students and employees impacted by Hurricane Florence. The actual applicants for these funds must be North Carolina public district, school and public charter school employees. Each application must be signed by the applicant’s principal/school leader (if applicable) and LEA superintendent or public charter school board chair.
