BATON ROUGE – FEMA has approved a 30-day extension for flood disaster survivors to temporarily stay in hotels. 

The extension applies to the Transitional Sheltering Assistance program in the state and allows eligible flood victims to stay in participating hotels temporarily if they are unable to return home. The cost of the room is paid directly to the hotel by FEMA.

The program checkout date has been extended to Wednesday, Oct. 19. FEMA will contact applicants who are eligible for the extension to notify them of their new checkout date.

FEMA continues to coordinate with voluntary, local, parish and state recovery partners to assist flood victims in transitioning them to more suitable temporary or long-term housing.
