Public Meetings on Flood Recovery Spending Plan
The state Office of Community Development has again scheduled a series of public meetings for Louisiana’s regions that were impacted by the historic 2016 floods. The meetings are free and no reservations are required. The Lafayette Parish meeting is Feb. 3 immediately following the 9:30 a.m. Restore Louisiana Task Force meeting at the Youngsville Sports Complex Recreation Center at 801 Savoy Road in Youngsville. The meetings provide residents an opportunity to view and comment on the flood recovery homeowner, renters and small business assistance programs that were recommended by the Restore Louisiana Task Force, given the federal restrictions that govern how this assistance may be distributed. The action plan for the most recent $1.2 billion appropriation can be found at http://www.doa.la.gov/Pages/ocd-dru/Action_Plans.aspx. Versions in Spanish and Vietnamese are also available.
