Summary at a Glance
Following the money that the state of Louisiana spends is very difficult since the state seems not to announce new contracts in the HUD official website. You must check often to see if any new contracts have been added to the states OCD-DRU website.

Budget Review for SBA DOB Repayments.

Pipeline report Nov. 2019 is referenced below.

  • 8,648 applicants continue to be offered offered Zero dollars. SBA processing from Zero Grant award numbers: 2,837 in which 1,168 Declined remaining 1,669 for repayments. Still leaves 4,227 for >120% and an estimated 4,000 between 80% and 120% AMI.
  • 12,895 applicants determined ineligible, this is a 2,673 increase in 30 days
  • 5,781 applicants withdrawn or rescinded from program.
  • 17,581 applicants were offered grants totaling $670,002,030.27 This is 2,000 over the Governors requested cap from 2018.
  • 15,629 applicants obligated grant funds totaling $599,753,368.61
  • 14,588 applicants had $485,410,453.92 distributed to them.

As of the Nov. 2019 pipeline report the state estimates a total of $670,002,030.27 worth of grants to honor with a payment. This grant number will increase as more homeowners are screened and vetted for SBA loan repayments.

Will the state have enough money to pay homeowners grants in accordance to HUD's June 20, 2019 Guidance?

Many homeowners are worried that the money will run dry before the first HUD audit for SBA repayments scheduled July 2020.

Hard figures are hard to come by with the state of Louisiana OCD-DRU releasing at times numbers that appear to be more about Public Relations and Communications rather than actual HUD DRGR figures. We've even seen HUD NOLA accept numbers that were questionable.

Follow the contact numbers, administrative costs and fees. What is not included in this first list is program costs such as cost share, infrastructure, economic development which are all percentages of allowable funding after HUD defined milestones are accomplished.
