Jefferson Parish

Home to Louisiana’s most popular barrier island, Jefferson Parish and its famous Grand Isle are flourishing eight years following Katrina and Rita’s landfall. In the midst of its coastal beauty and natural splendor, restored and new public facilities also are shaping the parish’s once ravaged landscape.

To date, FEMA has provided nearly $567.8 million in funding to rebuild or repair projects throughout the parish. Below is a sampling of pictures highlighting projects completed in Jefferson Parish over the past eight years.
