Application Deadline Approaching for Restore La Homeowner Assistance Program

September 18, 2018

The Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program application deadline is rapidly approaching on Monday, Oct. 1, 2018. This deadline applies to about 3,000 homeowners who took the initial survey and were invited to complete an application, but have not yet done so.

Because the application process requires the homeowner to submit supporting documentation, homeowners are encouraged to work with their assigned case manager to ensure their application is complete and submitted to the program by the deadline. Homeowners must hit the “submit” button and will receive email confirmation afterward.

Qualifying homeowners can complete their applications by visiting or by calling 866.735.2001 to speak with a program representative from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Additionally, homeowners may visit one of the program’s four Housing Assistance Centers in Baton Rouge, Hammond, Lafayette or Monroe, all of which are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

“For those folks who have completed the survey and been invited to apply, we strongly encourage you to act now and complete your program application before the October 1 deadline,” Pat Forbes, Executive Director of the Office of Community Development, said. “Homeowners will not have another opportunity to request assistance or reimbursement from the Restore program, even if there are future program changes that allow us to assist more flood-impacted homeowners, including any change in the SBA duplication of benefits (DOB) issue. If you need assistance in completing the application, program representatives are ready to help.”

More than 53,700 homeowners completed the program survey and to date, more than 40,400 applications are available for processing, nearly 37,800 have been processed, and grant awards totaling over $479 million have been offered to more than 14,100 eligible homeowners.
