LAKE CHARLES, La. - Nearly 2,000 households that survived Hurricanes Laura and Delta in Louisiana are getting more time in FEMA-provided housing as they complete the final steps of their recovery.

The original end for the temporary housing program was scheduled for Feb. 28.

The American Press reports an extension may give occupants until October 31 to complete their housing plan.

As of part of the extension, beginning on March 1, occupants will be charged an income-related monthly rent though it could be far below fair market rates for comparable properties.
