OCD-DRU



The Disaster Recovery Unit within the Division of Administration's Office of Community Development is dedicated to helping Louisiana's residents recover from hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav, Ike, Isaac and the Great Floods of 2016. As the state's central point for disaster recovery, OCD-DRU manages the most extensive rebuilding efforts in American history, working closely with local, state and federal partners to ensure that Louisiana's recovery is safer, stronger and smarter than before. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has appropriated Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery funds to Louisiana for recovery from the 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016 storms:

  • $13.4 billion for recovery from hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005;
  • $1.09 billion for recovery from hurricanes Gustav and Ike in 2008;
  • $66.4 million for recovery from Hurricane Isaac in 2012;
  • $92.6 million from HUD's National Disaster Resilience Competition in 2016; and
  • $1.7 billion for recovery from the Great Floods of 2016.
