What is it? Disaster Relief Employment is a program that provides temporary jobs to North Carolinians who have become unemployed – temporarily or permanently – as a result of a natural disaster.  The purpose of the jobs is to assist local recovery efforts through clean up and repair of facilities, and humanitarian assistance in the counties impacted by the disaster such as Bertie, Hertford and Martin County.

There are various types of jobs that will support the mission of Disaster Relief Recovery cleanup. These are not permanent positions or full time positions but will last as long as clean-up is needed in the counties assigned.

Applicants applying for these positions will need to be a U.S. citizen at least 18 years old, unemployed storm related, unemployed no fault of their own or unemployed due to business closure.

Applications are available at Bertie, Hertford and Martin County NCWorks Centers. Questions please contact: Olivia Taylor, (252) 578.2823.
