THE ROAD HOME ELEVATION INCENTIVE:

Many homeowners applied for the Road Home program after Hurricane Katrina and chose option 1 (to keep their home). Some received $30,000 as a home elevation incentive and/or to meet the required base flood elevation for their flood zone. This program has closed, but if you have already received your money and are looking into completing the work now, you may want to review time line stipulations as we have heard that Road Home administrators have begun to audit and file requests for final elevation certificates. For information, call: 1-888-762-3252 or visit www.road2la.org

SEVERE REPETITIVE LOSS MITIGATION

This program is administered by Parish Officials. Typically, qualifying homeowners are contacted by the Parish as money becomes available to them. However, it never hurts to do the research on your own! To find out if you are eligible, contact the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness Mitigation Offices at (225) 439-8758 or (225) 439-3886 or visit www.fema.gov/severe-repetitive-loss-program for more information. You can also contact the Flood Plain Manager in your parish.

INCREASED COST OF COMPLIANCE (ICC)

Qualified homeowners are eligible for up to $30,000 through the ICC grant program.

TO QUALIFY HOMEOWNERS MUST HAVE:

SUBSTANTIAL DAMAGE LETTER from the city or parish indicating that their residence incurred 51% or greater damage.
