Restore Louisiana starts door-to-door visits

Published 4:03 am Saturday, July 22, 2017

The Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program began door-to-door canvassing this week, speaking with homeowners impacted by last year’s floods and helping them fill-out and complete the program survey.

Staff members will have official Restore Louisiana vests and name badges and record information on tablet computers. This outreach effort is expected to continue until mid-August.

Completing the survey is the first step in requesting help with repairs or reimbursement through the 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.

Homeowners can take the survey online at, by telephone at 1-866-735-2001 or by visiting one of the Restore Louisiana housing assistance centers in Hammond, Lafayette, Monroe and Baton Rouge. The centers are open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program is an initiative to provide assistance to Louisiana homeowners affected by the floods of 2016. With funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provided via community development block grants, the program is designed to assist qualifying homeowners with recovery efforts. It is managed by the Office of Community Development. More information is available online at
