Homeowner Assistance Program


The Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program is available to provide recovery assistance to homeowners affected by the 2016 flooding.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has allocated funding to assist in Louisiana’s long term recovery from the severe flooding that occurred throughout much of the state in March and August of 2016. The funding for The Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program is allocated out of HUD’s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program.

The program consists of two steps: a survey and an application. The deadline to complete the initial program survey was October 19, 2018. The deadline to complete the program application is November 16, 2018. Homeowners are invited to complete an application based on their answers to the survey. Supporting documentation is required during the application process to verify eligibility for financial assistance.
