The Louisiana Housing Corporation (LHC), through a partnership with the Office of Community Development, officially announced a $32 million Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Rental Restoration and Development Program (RRDP). The RRDP program supports the repair, reconstruction, or new construction of residential rental units in qualified areas impacted by Hurricanes Laura, Delta, and Ida and the May 2021 floods.

Qualified projects must be in one of the FEMA Disaster-Declared Parishes or one of the HUD-Designated Most Impacted and Distressed Areas for Hurricanes Laura, Delta, and Ida or the May 2021 floods. Properties located in special flood hazard areas are not eligible to receive funding.

“The Rental Restoration and Development Program will support our rental property owners who have been affected by the federally declared disasters that have impacted our state within recent years,” said LHC Executive Director, Joshua G. Hollins. “Supporting our community with funding will help restore and rehabilitate housing stock while ensuring that affordable housing opportunities are available for tenants. Our team at LHC is proud to launch this vital effort to establish safe, affordable, and energy-efficient housing and build resilient communities across Louisiana.”

Below is a list of geographic locations in specific parishes that are eligible for the program.
