Louisiana flood-aid program looking for eligible homeowners

BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) - Louisiana's rebuilding program for homeowners with damage from the 2016 floods is hosting outreach events trying to get more people in the pipeline for federal aid.

The deadline for filling out a survey that starts the process for homeowner assistance is July 20, and the Restore Louisiana program is hoping to get more surveys complete.

Homeowners can fill out the survey online, call 1-866-735-2001 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday or visit a housing assistance center in Lafayette, Hammond, Monroe or Baton Rouge on weekdays.

But program representatives also will be available at the outreach events to help with survey completion. A schedule of the events is available online.

More than 11,000 people have received grant offers totaling $292 million so far from the federally-funded homeowner program.
