Home Elevations

As part of the state’s commitment to rebuilding safer, smarter and stronger, Louisiana is undertaking the largest elevation effort in American History – a $1.75 billion combined effort.

Road Home Elevations

Provides homeowners with up-front, flat-rate grants to elevate their homes to the flood standard that has been adopted by their parish government. Site-built homes are eligible for $30,000; mobile homes are eligible for $20,000. The elevation grant may not cause the homeowner’s total Road Home grant to exceed the cap of $150,000 set by Congress. 

Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Elevations 

Provides homeowners with up to $100,000 in elevation reimbursements. The grant is not subject to the Road Home cap of $150,000 set by Congress. The HMGP is a FEMA program that is made available following a presidential disaster declaration and can, among other things, fund mitigation measures to protect a home from future flooding.
