Restore Louisiana to hold final session before Friday survey deadline
DENHAM SPRINGS - Restore Louisiana is holding one last outreach session before Friday's survey deadline.
Officials are asking anyone whose home flooded in either the March or August 2016 floods to fill out the survey. It takes less than an hour to complete. Surveys won't be accepted after Friday.
Restore Louisiana says they are receiving about 300 surveys per week and more than 42,000 homeowners have already qualified for one of the phases of the program.
The deadline comes after the Restore Louisiana Task Force approved Governor John Bel Edwards' request to bump up the reimbursement rate to 100 percent.
Thursday's outreach event will take place from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the Livingston Parish Library in Denham Springs.
At the outreach events, representatives will be available to answer questions, provide information, and work directly with homeowners on a first-come, first-served basis.
