Hurricane Laura may have come and gone, but there are many of us who are just beginning to pick up the pieces (figuratively and literally).

Whether you have insurance or not, Lafayette Consolidated Government encourages residents of Lafayette Parish whose homes or businesses experienced damage to fill out a Damage Assessment Form. (This includes any type of storm damage, including wind and/or flooding.)

This information will not only document the impact of the storm on individuals, families and businesses, it also assists the Parish in qualifying for future federal funding.

The form can be filled out online at lafayetteoshep.org or over the phone at 337-291-5075.
