Find out when authorities plan to have trailers in place.
NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Thousands of homes are in need of repair. Some will have to be completely rebuilt because of Hurricane Ida.
While homes in affected areas are being repaired, the state offers an accommodation program option, offering caravans.
This program aims to help reduce the risk of the virus spreading while allowing families to live close to where they are rebuilding.
The goal is to have the first state-owned travel trailers in designated parishes within the week. Teams will begin to assess group and private location sites.
People are currently living in unsafe or unsanitary housing as a result of Hurricane Ida, which Governor John Bel Edwards said “… is not acceptable”. Residents are still without water, air conditioning and electricity at Ground Zero in southern Louisiana. “Housing is the biggest challenge facing those affected by this devastating storm, and our state-run shelter program is a safe, creative and temporary solution to bringing more people closer to their homes during reconstruction.” , Governor Edwards said.
The program will be available, not only to Ida’s victims, but also to those who still need housing after Hurricanes Laura, Delta and Zeta.
