FEMA Needs to Hear from Residents Needing Housing Assistance by May 28

Published April 28, 2021
 
Residents whose homes were destroyed or sustained major damage from Hurricane Laura or Hurricane Delta and still need housing assistance need to contact FEMA by May 28, 2021

From the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury – Did you register for assistance with FEMA after Hurricanes Laura or Delta and still need a place to live? Did your circumstances change and you now need housing — after telling FEMA you did not? If so, FEMA needs to hear from you no later than Friday, May 28.

Residents should call the FEMA Helpline at 1-800-621-3362 (TTY 1-800-462-7585).

FEMA is working on housing approximately 700 families who remain on the list of applicants eligible for direct temporary housing.

Applicants may be eligible for direct temporary housing if they are homeowners or renters whose homes were destroyed or had major damage (total loss or damaged structurally and not safe, sanitary, and functional to live in) as a result of Hurricanes Laura or Delta (based on the FEMA determination); and are pre-disaster residents of one of the 12 parishes designated for the Direct Temporary Housing Program: Acadia, Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, Grant, Jefferson Davis, Rapides, St. Landry, St. Martin, Vermilion and Vernon.

FEMA needs to hear from those applicants:

  • Whose homes were destroyed or received major damage from the hurricanes (based on the FEMA determination) and have not been contacted by FEMA to determine whether they need temporary housing.
  • Who initially indicated they did not need temporary housing assistance, but circumstances have changed, and they may now need housing assistance.
  • Who FEMA has been unable to contact to complete the interview. If you think you should have heard from FEMA or have additional information about the condition of your home,

Again, the deadline to contact FEMA regarding temporary housing assistance is Friday, May 28, 2021.

Contact FEMA by calling the helpline at 1-800-621-3362 (TTY 1-800-462-7585). Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption, or CapTel should alert FEMA as to the specific number assigned to that service.
