The Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program is hosting a series of outreach events across the state to assist homeowners in completing the initial survey by the July 20, 2018, deadline. The first one held in Vermilion Parish Monday afternoon.
Officials say that homeowners who have not submitted a survey by the deadline will no longer be eligible for consideration by the program. Today in Vermilion Parish, representatives were on hand to assist with applications, answer questions about the program and work directly with homeowners.
A second meeting event is scheduled in Lafayette Parish on Tuesday, June 19, 2018.
The scheduled outreach events are listed below:
June 18, 1 – 5 p.m.
Vermilion Parish Library – Abbeville Branch
403 E. Saint Victor St., Abbeville
June 19, 1 – 5 p.m.
Lafayette Public Library – South Regional Branch
6101 Johnston St., Lafayette
Homeowners may also complete the survey online at restore.la.gov or by calling 1-866-735-2001 to speak to a representative from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Housing Assistance Centers in Lafayette, Hammond, Monroe and Baton Rouge are also open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
All flood-impacted homeowners are encouraged to complete the survey even if they do not believe they will qualify for assistance. Restore says that assistance is available regardless of income and regardless of whether you’ve already completed repairs.
The deadline does not apply to homeowners who have already submitted a survey or an application.
