RALEIGH, N.C. -- More than $20 million in federal disaster relief already is in the hands of North Carolina survivors rebuilding after Hurricane Irene - and more money is on the way. So, now is a good time to remind those getting these much-needed payments to spend wisely. Most disaster grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency are deposited electronically, followed by a letter explaining how the money should be spent. Hurricane survivors should only use these grants to meet specific disaster-related needs.
