Deadline extended for Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance

WASHINGTON PARISH, La. – Louisiana’s Restore Homeowner Assistance Program has extended its application deadline to Tuesday, Oct. 31. This new deadline applies to roughly 6,500 homeowners who have completed the initial survey but have not yet submitted their applications.

The extension gives homeowners ample time to complete their applications and potentially qualify for repair reimbursement. Pat Forbes, executive director of the Louisiana Office of Community Development, stated that the goal is to administer as much recovery assistance as possible to Louisiana homeowners, hence the need for them to act now.

Homeowners can submit their applications in three ways: online at restore.la.gov, by phone (866.735.2001 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday), or in person across the state. The program has several online resources to guide homeowners through the application process.

Since the program’s launch in February 2022, more than 39,100 homeowners have completed the survey, and more than 23,700 have been invited to apply. As of October 9, the program has offered more than $380 million in funding to 4,846 eligible homeowners.

The Restore Louisiana program is a federally funded, state-administered program that provides grant funding to homeowners who were affected by Hurricanes Laura, Delta, and Ida, as well as the May 2021 Severe Storms, to help with home repair, reconstruction, and reimbursement for completed repairs.

The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and administered by the Louisiana Office of Community Development. For more information, visit restore.la.gov.
