The Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program will hold an outreach event in Shreveport to help flood impacted families complete the initial homeowner survey and to assist those homeowners who have been invited to complete a program application.

Program representatives will be available to answer questions, provide information and work directly with homeowners on a first-come, first-served basis.

Completing the survey is the first step in requesting help through the Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program.

Last week, more than 450 homeowners participated in program-sponsored meetings in Livingston, East Baton Rouge, and Ascension parishes.

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.

A local event is scheduled in Caddo Parish for July 11, 3-7 p.m. at the Shreve Memorial Library Atkins Branch, 3704 Greenwood Road in Shreveport.
Homeowners unable to attend an outreach event can complete the survey online at restore.la.gov or speak to a representative by telephone 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday at (866) 7352001.


In addition, housing assistance centers in Lafayette, Hammond, Monroe and Baton Rouge are open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Program representatives are available to help homeowners complete surveys and applications, connect with a case manager and provide an overview of options for repairs, reconstruction or reimbursement.

Homeowners who need assistance and would like to visit with a case manager are encouraged to call (866) 735-2001 to schedule an appointment at a nearby center to avoid wait times.

Locations are as follows:

Baton Rouge
Oak Tree Building at Celtic Studios
