Its not unusual to not find the online registration form for Operation Blue Roof provided by the US Army Corps of Engineers. Its also not unusual to not find a local signup location. Let me share with you what I found Sept. 9, 2021 for your Blue Roof.

The Official Location of the Application Form: US Army Corps of Engineers Operation Blue Roof Applications Form Sept. 2021 Hurricane Ida.

If you have called the US Army Corps of Engineers as instructed by FEMA following the FEMA information link ( https://www.fema.gov/disaster/hurricane-ida#rebuild ) You most likely found the following information. 

Clean-Up, Repair and Rebuild

Operation Blue Roof

In Louisiana, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has activated its Operation Blue Roof program for parishes approved for individual assistance. Residents can sign up for the program and complete a Right of Entry form at BlueRoof.us.

Call toll free 1-888-ROOF-BLU (1-888-766-3258) for more information.

 If you called using the Roof-Blu 888 number you were instructed to click on the "BlueRoof.us" link that would have redirected you to https://www.blueroof.us which has a certificate error and a scary screen that advises you to click away. Now, even if you continue you are then redirected to a different page over at the US Army Corps of Engineers main website and you start the process of finding the online application link all over again. 

Here's the paths you might have taken and at the end I'll share the link to the actual sign up page so you don't have to do all this work. 

From BlueRoof.US you are redirected to https://www.mvn.usace.army.mil/ Missions/ Emergency-Operations/ Blue-Roof-Information/ . 

On that page you'll see an image BlueRoof with a link to the applications page.

That Operation Blue Roof image that shows the word "Apply" then redirects you to https://arcportal-ucop-partners.usace.army.mil/ usaceportal/apps/sites/ #/usace-blue-roof-online-signup

The Operation Blue Roof signup page is the form to allow access to your property and can be accessed by clicking on the Apply Button. 

The Apply button then takes you to https://survey123.arcgis.com/ share/ 68358194235145abbf8000ba60386062?portalUrl= https://arcportal-ucop-partners.usace.army.mil/ usaceportal

Now you can use the form to actually apply for your Operation Blue Roof using the official link to the online form

The US Army Corps of Engineers don't really do well with websites if you ask me. But, once you find the link by then you'll understand how they think.

FEMA Trailer and MHU program ends 18 months after a disaster declaration date.

Your states governor will need to submit to FEMA an extension for the temporary shelters. The extension will come at a price which your governor may pay for out of state funds or charge the occupants based on income or a flat monthly fee typically 50.00.

Will FEMA reimburse me for buying a chainsaw or a generator? Maybe, but most likely no.

Read all warning labels: FEMA News and Press Releases may not be as they seem. They will not link policy or training. Statements made in press releases to be true have to be backed up with official policy documents and / or Federal Register publications.

Renters, your FEMA assistance is called Individual Assistance or IA. FEMA can and should offer you grants to replace some of the items you have lost. This is not a substitute for renters insurance and this is not going to make you whole again.
