St. Charles Parish added for FEMA individual aid
St. Charles Parish has been added to the list of Louisiana parishes with heavy damage from Hurricane Isaac approved by FEMA for individual assistance grants.
Gov. Bobby Jindal's office announced the addition Tuesday.
FEMA's approval of St. Charles Parish brings the number of parishes to 10 where residents and business owners can apply for grants for temporary housing and home repairs, and to cover uninsured property losses from the storm.
Individual assistance is also available in Ascension, Jefferson, Lafourche, Livingston, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. John the Baptist and St. Tammany parishes.
Beyond the grants for housing repair and living assistance, residents and business owners can apply for low-interest federal disaster loans through the U.S. Small Business Administration.
