Assistance Program

The Road Home Program has assisted more than 130,000 Louisiana citizens affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The program has disbursed more than $9 billion dollars to the residents of Louisiana. The program has had a tremendous impact on the largest rebuilding effort in American history. The Road Home Program has successfully completed all rebuilding initiatives and is now bringing the program to closure. The program has allowed Road Home applicants to rebuild safer, stronger and smarter.

The Louisiana Office of Community Development is pleased to announce that through a closeout agreement with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the state will forego legal recapture actions against 3,300 homeowners from program-related obligations.

The state is releasing unpaid judgments and payment plans against homeowners and closing out all remaining program lawsuits without requiring any further repayments from affected homeowners. No action is required from homeowners. The impacted homeowners will be notified of these changes directly. Please click here to view Frequently Asked Questions about the Road Home Closeout Agreement. If you have more questions, call Shows, Cali & Walsh, L.L.P. at 225.383.9838.
