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.
