Restore Louisiana Application Period Open in Terrebonne
The Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program provides grant funding to eligible homeowners affected by Hurricane Ida for home repair, reconstruction, and reimbursement for repairs already completed. Council members may wish to forward this information to their constituents.
This is run by the State Office of Community Development. The state will be reaching out to eligible applicants and has had staff at libraries all month.
This is the last week for people to meet with Restore Louisiana staff onsite.
The program is offering on-site support in Houma for homeowners in the area who may need in-person assistance:
Substantially damaged homes may be eligible for an elevation allowance. Homes with significant damage may be demolished and reconstructed. The program will allow people who own manufactured homes and doublewides to replace their homes with similarly sized manufactured homes.
Homeowners can start the application process online if they prefer. Homeowners are encouraged to complete the Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program survey at www.restore.la.gov.
This brief survey can be completed on any tablet, smart phone, or computer at any time. This week, if they have questions people can go to Fletcher and ask questions or review documentation with OCD staff in person. Restore LA has a phone line also at 866-735-2001.
The survey is free and there is no deadline set for completing the survey.
To serve the most vulnerable populations most effectively in our state, the program’s phased approach, which is aligned with federal guidance, ensures that the most vulnerable populations are prioritized for assistance.
The program’s intent is to assist as many disaster-impacted homeowners as possible, while prioritizing assistance for the most vulnerable homeowners. The program is anticipated to have funding available prior to the FEMA hazard mitigation grant program, and this should be considered when people are weighing their options.
