This segment from the May 19, 2017, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features Andre Moreau’s in-studio interview with Jeff Haley, the director of the Homeowner Assistance Program for the Office of Community Development. He discusses: the lack of response to the Restore Louisiana survey for homeowners impacted by the 2016 floods; the importance of filling out the survey in order to be eligible for the $1.6 billion in recovery money from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD); the importance of learning where people are in their recovery efforts; the ways to complete the survey; and the misconceptions about the HUD program.
