All individuals who need temporary housing assistance MUST register AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Arrangements are being made NOW by Terrebonne Parish Government and FEMA to provide this temporary housing assistance IMMEDIATELY and we need to know exactly how many individuals require this temporary housing. Those individuals who have registered will be receiving the first assistance. It is our concern that records do not reflect an accurate number of registrants compared to the numbers received from the Fema registrations and the inspections completed. To assure that your registration has been received and you are on the list to receive this temporary housing immediately, please contact BOTH FEMA @ 1-800-621-FEMA ((3362) AND The Office of Emergency Preparedness at 873-6357. There are also two on-site registration stations: (1) Town Hall, Barrow Street in Houma and (2) Grand Caillou Recreation Center. We do not want to leave anyone out. We want to assure that you are able to receive this assistance as soon as possible. Also, it is important to stress that if you need assistance for both storms that you must register for both storms individually, (1) Gustav and (2) Ike. Although registration has been extended, do not wait. To receive your temporary housing in the next few weeks get your name on the list NOW.
