BATON ROUGE, La. – In support of the state of Louisiana’s request to waive rent for Hurricane Ida survivors living in
temporary housing units (THUs), FEMA has authorized a waiver reducing rent to the policy minimum of $50 per
month through May 31, 2023. Normal rent policy will apply to THU occupants starting June 2023.
On Jan. 21, FEMA began sending letters to survivors notifying them of the waiver.
FEMA is committed to providing temporary housing to eligible Hurricane Ida survivors as they continue the long-term
work of recovery. Since Ida made landfall, FEMA has housed more than 3,800 families in mobile homes, travel
trailers and other ready-to-occupy housing.
