LITTLE ROCK - Northeast Arkansas is cleaning up and entering the rebuilding phase after severe weather tore through the area on Friday. True to their core, many Arkansans will want to help their neighbors clean up and rebuild, however con artists will seize the opportunity to take advantage of hurting communities, especially as supply chains are making it harder to acquire necessary products for the home repairs.

“I urge all Arkansans to stay alert as they begin the clean-up process and use caution if approached with unsolicited home-repair offers,” said Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. “Scams are common following severe weather and in these already difficult times fraud can place additional strain on Arkansans when services aren’t completed as promised.”

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will provide $13.6 million in American Rescue Plan (ARP) funding to enable 51 HUD Fair Housing Initiatives Program agencies to conduct a range of fair housing enforcement and education and outreach activities related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
