St. Bernard Parish

There is much to celebrate in St. Bernard Parish, as recovery growth shows continued progress and momentum. As the parish moves forward, its final destination will lead to one well-deserved place – the complete restoration of St. Bernard Parish, marking another victory for the historic community. Now, along with the prominent Chalmette Monument commemorating the Battle of New Orleans, these recovery projects also will serve as monuments that symbolize the parish’s triumph and rebirth since the devastating storms of 2005.

To date, FEMA has provided more than $1.8 billion in funding to rebuild or repair projects throughout the parish. Below is a photo essay of some of the highlights of St. Bernard’s recovery.
