Monday final day to apply for FEMA assistance in Louisiana

Posted at 9:22 AM, Nov 29, 2021

Monday, November 29, is the deadline to submit an application for Hurricane Ida assistance.

FEMA says that, despite the deadline, it will remain in Louisiana to assist survivors.

Those who have applied for assistance can continue to upload documents and update information to their files.

FEMA is also urging survivors to stay informed, reach out, and keep their contact information up to date to avoid any delays in the processing of applications.

Survivors who applied with FEMA before Nov. 29 and discover later that their insurance does not cover all losses, have up to a year to submit additional documentation to FEMA.

FEMA says it is important to provide them with any final insurance settlement information, as assistance may be available for some expenses not covered by insurance.

Applicants should stay in touch with FEMA to ensure the disaster-assistance process stays on track. Missing or incorrect information could hold things up.

To update contact information and report additional damage or a delay in insurance payments:

  • Go online at;
  • Call the FEMA Helpline 800-621-3362. Multilingual operators are available; or
  • Download the FEMA app.
