Parish Recovery Program
More than half of the $1.09 billion appropriated to Louisiana by HUD for recovery from hurricanes Gustav and Ike was allocated to the 53 impacted parishes. Based on damages, the parishes received a total allocation of $562.5 million to implement their own housing, infrastructure and economic development programs. OCD-DRU parish liaisons provide technical assistance to the parishes in designing their programs, drawing down funds, finding contractors, etc.
