Deadline to Schedule Road Home Initial Appointment is December 1
BATON ROUGE, La., October 1, 2007 - Applicants to The Road Home program must schedule their initial appointments by December 1, 2007, program officials announced today. All appointments must be completed by December 15, 2007.
The Road Home program requires applicants to complete an appointment with a program housing advisor. Homeowners who do not schedule this appointment by December 1 and complete it by December 15 will be considered ineligible to receive assistance from the program.
Appointments are available at eleven Housing Assistance Centers across Louisiana and in Houston. Applicants who live out of state may conduct a telephone appointment and complete an application packet through the mail. However, program managers strongly encourage homeowners to conduct appointments in-person if at all possible. This will help expedite the processing of the homeowner's application. These applicants must still call to schedule this telephone appointment no later than Dec. 1, and all materials must be returned by Dec. 15.
"It is critical that applicants complete their first appointments by December 1 to move forward in The Road Home process," said Michael Taylor, director of the Disaster Recovery Unit, Office of Community Development. "Anyone who has applied to the program must complete this appointment in order to receive an award."
Applicants who have yet to schedule their first appointments must do so by calling 1.888.762.3252. TTY callers use 711 relay. Appointment times will be based on availability. Applicants are encouraged to call as soon as possible to schedule their appointments. Advisory Service appointments (follow up appointments) will still be available after the Dec. 15 deadline.

The Road Home program is designed to provide compensation to Louisiana homeowners affected by Hurricanes Katrina or Rita for the damage to their homes. This groundbreaking program represents the largest single housing recovery program in U.S. history. Working together, Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco, the Louisiana Recovery Authority and the Office of Community Development created The Road Home program with the approval of the Louisiana Legislature. The program affords eligible homeowners up to $150,000 in compensation for their losses to get back into their homes.
