What is the Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance program (“Restore Louisiana”)?
In 2016, after Gov. John Bel Edwards sought federal flood recovery funding for Louisiana, Congress provided three appropriations of Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery funds for nationwide recovery from several disasters. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to various states allocated these funds. HUD allocated $437.8 million from the first appropriation, $1.2 billion from the second appropriation and $51 million from the third appropriation to Louisiana. The Disaster Recovery Unit within the Division of Administration's Office of Community Development administers the Restore Louisiana to help Louisiana residents recover from the Great Floods of 2016.
