Houses of worship eligible for damage assistance

Published 4:30 am Thursday, October 14, 2021

LAPLACE — Houses of worship (churches/synagogues, etc.) are able to apply and may be eligible to receive funding for the repair and/or replacement of facilities damaged or destroyed during a natural disaster. FEMA policies were changed to make it easier to receive possible funding from an event that is a Federally Declared Major Disaster, such as Hurricane Ida.

Please email for assistance with more information and initial coordination with the appropriate Louisiana Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness personnel. The current deadline to submit a request is December 28, 2021.
