Road Home Deadline

Aug 11, 2008 by

With approximately one month’s notice of the state’s Sept. 5 Road Home Program deadline, thousands, including low-income homeowners in desperate need, could permanently lose the chance to receive federal rebuilding funds from the program that was supposed to help them get back home.

Please join in calling for the State to rescind the deadline by signing the petition here, (NOTE: you have to scroll down a little to see the text that pops up for each of the links).

We hope that the City of New Orleans will be joining us too –  Councilmember Fielkow will introduce a resolution on Wed. at the Disaster Cmte. meeting (2pm City Council chambers) calling on the State to rescind the deadline – the resolution is currently circulating with other City Council members.  By signing the petition, you will also be supporting the resolution.  The resolution is posted at the web link above.

There is also a link for “Sponsoring Organizations” — if your organization supports rescinding the deadline and the proposed resolution, please sign your organization.

All Congregations Together (ACT) will be sponsoring a press conference before the City Council meeting on Wed. at 1pm on the steps outside City Hall !!

The state of Louisiana must rescind the Road Home deadline. All of Louisiana’s homeowners deserve a fair chance to receive their federal rebuilding funds. The state should not impose this global deadline on homeowners especially when it recognizes that its own contractor ICF has not properly performed.
