The Road Home & Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs
In an effort to assist Louisiana with our recovery efforts, FEMA has provided the state with funding for home elevation. These funds are being distributed through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) in coalition with the already present Road Home Program.
The Road Home Program
The Road Home Program is a homeowner assistance program designed to help Louisiana residents rebuild and protect their homes after the destruction left by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita. Along with increased flood protection, updated building codes, and improved municipal drainage, the program was put in place to offer financial assistance to those rebuilding and protecting their homes from potential future storm damage.
Hazard Mitigation Grant Program
The Hazard Mitigation Grant program targets to help Louisiana residents that are participating in The Road Home Program by providing financial assistance to homeowners who are looking to protect their homes from future natural disasters. Funds are available for elevating homes, reconstructing safer structures, or installing individual mitigation measures.
Do I Qualify?
If you participated in Road Home and chose Option One (chose to stay in your pre-Katrina home), you may qualify to receive assistance for elevation through this program. You could qualify for up to $100,000 through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (State Program). To qualify, you must have applied for Road Home before November 2007.
We have been working closely with the HMGP program and follow all state guidelines for participation. We also work one-on-one with our clients in order to help you through the application process.
