Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Overview

Welcome to the Office of Community Development / Disaster Recovery Unit's
Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.

The Office of Community Development Hazard Mitigation Grant Program helps homeowners in coastal Louisiana protect their homes from damage in future natural disasters by elevating their homes, reconstructing safer structures, or installing individual mitigation measures. OCD-DRU HMGP targets participants in Louisiana’s Road Home program that needed additional funds to complete their home mitigation. The $650 million OCD-DRU program is part of Louisiana’s commitment of more than $1.7 billion to strengthen its coastal communities through home mitigation.

To date, the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program has paid over $621,768,000 to mitigate the effects of natural disasters to 9,595 homes.
