Housing Assistance Centers Opened, Outreach Scheduled for Flood-Impacted Homeowners

For Release On:

June 23, 2017

BATON ROUGE: Housing assistance centers are open in Lafayette and Hammond, in addition to recently opened centers in Baton Rouge and Monroe. Representatives at these centers can help flood impacted families complete the initial homeowner survey, and case managers are available to assist those who have been invited to complete a program application.

Due to the high number of flood-impacted homeowners in the capital region and the high volume of walk-ins at the Baton Rouge housing assistance center, a series of outreach events is planned for next week in surrounding communities. Program representatives will be available to answer questions, provide information and work directly with homeowners on a first-come, first-served basis to complete the program survey.

Completing the survey is the first step in requesting help through the Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program.

All flood?impacted homeowners are strongly encouraged to complete the survey, even if they do not believe they will qualify for assistance. Additional homeowners may qualify as more funding becomes available.

Events are scheduled as follows:

June 27, 3-7 p.m.

Livingston Parish – South Branch Library

23477 La.  444, Livingston, LA 70754
