Take A Tip Tuesday- Flood Assistance


This comes directly from an email I received and I wanted to get the word out to all residents of Ascension Parish and surrounding areas.

The Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program strongly urges all flood-affected homeowners to complete the initial homeowner assistance survey. The survey takes about 15 minutes and may be completed online at http://restore.la.gov or over the phone by calling (866) 735-2001 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The program recognizes that some homeowners may need help completing this survey and has scheduled six outreach events to ensure that those who need assistance can receive it.

These events will be held as follows:

May 16 – 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Southeastern Louisiana University – Student Union 500 W University Ave., Hammond, LA 70402

May 17 – 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Ascension Parish Library – Gonzales 708 S Irma Ave., Gonzales, LA 70737

May 18 – 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Bill Cockrell Recreation Center

4109 Pines Road, Shreveport, LA 71119

May 23 – 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

East Baton Rouge Parish Library, Greenwell Springs 11300 Greenwell Springs Road, Baton Rouge, LA 70814

May 24 – 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Youngsville Sports Complex Gymnasium 801 Savoy Road, Youngsville, LA 70592

May 25 – 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Denham Springs Old City Hall

115 Mattie St., Denham Springs, LA 70726

The purpose of these events is to help homeowners complete the survey and answer any questions about the program. No formal presentation will be provided, but program information and materials will be available. While no documentation is required, we do ask that you bring your FEMA ID number if you have one.

For all updates, go to restore.la.gov

To be eligible for one of the six phases of the program, homeowners must meet all of the eligibility criteria listed below:

• Must have been the owner occupant at time of the disaster event

• The damaged address must have been the homeowner’s primary residence at the time of the disaster event

• The damage suffered must be a result of the March or August 2016 severe storms and flooding events

• The structure must be eligible as determined by the program, which includes single family homes, duplexes, mobile homes, and condominiums

• The structure must be located in one of 51 disaster-declared parishes
