NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Dozens of hurricane victims whose rebuilding process was complicated by the use of contaminated drywall benefit from nearly $10 million from Louisiana's Road Home Program.
The program announced Sept. 9 it has completed its effort to assist hurricane Katrina and Rita victims who got hit with contaminated drywall problems.
The program started in 2013. More than 140 homeowners have been assisted since then with help replacing drywall, appliances and other items damaged by contaminated building materials.
Thousands of homeowners in the U.S. have experienced problems because of the use of contaminated drywall. Most of the bad building material was shipped to the U.S. from overseas.
