BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLA) – FEMA has extended the temporary housing program deadline for August 2016 flood survivors in Louisiana. 

The State of Louisiana requested that FEMA extend the deadline for 1,100 survivors by giving them time to remain in FEMA housing as their recovery continues.

Stephanie Boswell of FEMA said, “the extension of the temporary program may allow occupants to complete their housing plan up until May 15.”

The deadline extension agreement with Louisiana allows for FEMA housing occupants to be charged $50 per month in rent.

FEMA said that housing program eligibility and continued occupancy is determined on a monthly basis for homeowners and on a bi-weekly basis for renters.

According to Boswell, to remain eligible, temporary housing occupants must show that they are making progress on a permanent housing plan.

According to FEMA, many homeowners are actively participating in the Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program.
