Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program Extends

 Application Deadline to Tuesday, Oct. 31

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. 

Many residents who filled out surveys for the Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program have not completed their full applications and may be running out of time to get reimbursed for repairs already done.  The State has  extended its application deadline to Tuesday, Oct. 31.  This new deadline applies to about 6,500 homeowners who have completed the initial survey and been invited by the state to apply, but have not yet submitted applications.

Due to federal recovery timelines, homeowners who do not submit applications by the Oct. 31 deadline to give the state time to do a damage assessment by the end of 2023 may not be reimbursed for repairs were completed prior to Dec. 31, 2023.  The state will continue to take applications after this date for all programs, but reimbursements for work done prior to December 31 of this year may not be reimbursed. 

"The state has extended the deadline to allow ample opportunity for homeowners to complete applications and potentially qualify for repair reimbursement," Pat Forbes, executive director of the Louisiana Office of Community Development, said. "I hope those who have been invited to complete an application but have not yet done so will take advantage of this opportunity. Our goal is to administer as much recovery assistance as possible to Louisiana homeowners, so we encourage them to act now."

Homeowners can submit their application in three different ways:

•           Online: Log into their account at restore.la.gov.

•           Phone: Call the program call center at 866.735.2001 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The program is run by the State Office of Community Development.  The state will be reaching out to eligible applicants and will have staff at local libraries to accept documents and answer questions regarding all programs including repairs, home reconstruction, and mobile home replacement.
