BATON ROUGE - The state is accepting public comments on a plan that would invest $1 million in a new Homeowner Rehabilitation Program for low- to moderate-income residents whose homes were damaged after Hurricane Isaac.
Partial Action Plan 2 allocates $1 million to the program in order to address housing needs in parishes that didn't get separate Disaster Recovery Community Development Block Grant funding.
The funds are part of the $66.4 million in CDBG dollars that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development allocated to Louisiana for recovery from the 2012 storm.
Eligible parishes include: Allen, Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Lafourche, Livingston, Morehouse, Pointe Coupee, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. Martin, St. Mary, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne, Washington, West Baton Rouge and West Feliciana.
