The President has officially approved Governor Roy Cooper's request for a federal disaster declaration to help tornado victims in Guilford and Rockingham counties.
The decision came on Tuesday, April 15. All storm victims will be able to apply for low-interest federal loans or grants to help them repair their homes and businesses.
Families and business owners can now apply for financial help to repair and rebuild.
The governor declared a state of emergency for Guilford and Rockingham counties on April 20 and sent the federal disaster declaration request to the president on April 25.
