Hyde County Commissioners accepted a $600,000 state-funded grant this week to allow for more aid for people affected by Hurricane Dorian. The funding will provide rental assistance and travel trailers to meet temporary housing needs.  It will also provide professional project management assistance to the county to aid in rebuilding and recovery.  According to a news release, HB 200, which was signed into law by Gov. Roy Cooper this week, included $1.7 million for repairs to the Ocracoke School and other recovery funds for Hyde County. The state grant is the first installment of state assistance for Hyde County.
