LaFourche Parrish, Louisiana: $692,629

The goal of this project is to elevate or acquire flood prone structures in accordance with the floodplain regulations of the community. There have been a total of five repetitive loss and severe repetitive loss paid claims across the properties and the acquisition of these properties will prevent flooding at the location.

The land will remain green space in perpetuity, returning the land to its natural state, and the elevation project will mitigate two structures. While mitigation reconstruction will be an alternate mitigation activity to elevation, the structure will be required to use the same square footage as the original structure if it meets the community’s current code of ordinances.
