Lamont McClure and Emergency Management Services announces that Northampton County was successfully added to the small list of counties that will be offered Individual Assistance (IA) for residents affected by Hurricane Ida. IA will provide grants, low-interest loans and other resources to help families that may have experienced loss and/or damages due to the tropical storm
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is scheduled to begin sending teams to Northampton County on September 27th. The teams will visit the hardest hit areas and attempt to make face-to-face contact with those severely affected by the storm.
