HUD allocates $100 million to Louisiana for Isaac recovery


On Wednesday, U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan allocated nearly $107 million throughout the State of Louisiana to help local communities to recover from Hurricane Isaac last year.

These grants, part of $514 million allocated among nine states nationwide, are provided through HUD's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program to support long-term disaster recovery efforts in areas with the greatest extent of 'unmet need.'

The State of Louisiana will receive $66,398,000 to help the hardest-hit areas from the impact of Hurricane Isaac in August of 2012.

In addition, HUD is also providing $16,453,000 directly to Jefferson Parish; $15,031,000 to the City of New Orleans; and $8,896,000 to St. Tammany Parish.
