FEMA extends TSA program to January 17
BATON ROUGE – FEMA has approved Louisiana’s request to extend the Traditional Sheltering Assistance program until January 2017.
The TSA program is intended to provide “short-term sheltering” to flood survivors by allowing them to stay in FEMA approved hotel rooms.
State officials requested the extension due to a lack of rental resources and widespread damage to homes throughout Louisiana.
Evacuees living in hotel rooms in the state of Louisiana will be eligible for the extension.
Emergency officials say they will use the extension to work with federal authorities to assist individuals to find suitable rental resources.
“All TSA eligible applicants as outlined by the State are authorized to remain lodging with a checkout date no later than January, 17, 2017,” the request said.
