With limited time we are publishing to all disaster victims 5 clarification points that we will be asking the Louisiana Homeowners Assistance Task Force to enter into public record and make known to the OCD-DRU their understanding and definition of the following

  • Recognize that the OCD-DRU Administration Manual published at the official OCD-DRU website is the official state policy location for all disaster recovery efforts effecting the citizens of Louisiana, Homeowners as well as renters. We also need to establish these are the policies that U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has approved for the State of Louisiana Office of Community Development - Disaster Recovery Unit.
  • Agree on the definition of the word "assistance" as the provision of money to directly help someone.
    For Disaster victims we would say to be clear, "did not accept assistance", "did not received assistance" "did accept assistance" , "did receive assistance".
  • Can we agree that HUD identifies one of its core national objectives as offering assistance to Low to Moderate income families? (LMI = 80% AMI or lower)
  • Can we also agree that HUD issued terms with the allocation of funds that 55% of the funds provided would be used to assist or offer assistance to Low to Moderate Income families in the most impacted zones?
  • Can we agree that we do our best to follow all local, state and federal laws?

We have to have every Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program Task Force member agree or identify with each of the points above.

Without all members working from the same page we will have continued conflict and misunderstanding to what our main mission is and our community goals.

DRRA Disaster Recovery Reform Act of 2018 , 2019 , 2020, 2021 to 2022 Homeowners Perspective

Each year new disasters offer the opportunity for politicians to create new bills that do little more than pump tax dollars into the same dysfunctional programs we have had since 1954.

Promote a Safe and Healthy workplace environment

If you build a safe, hostile free work environment you will find workers are more willing to return to work than to remain on Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation assistance. Too many studies show those willing to work will work.

Is the increased cost of building materials in 2020, 2021 making your disaster recovery impossible to afford?

Do you know HUD 2019 Guidance? Have you researched the meaning of, "Reassess Unmet Need When Necessary". Has your state informed you of their reassessment processes? Can you manage the additional cost caused by the 2020, 2021 pandemic economic downturn?

Louisiana playing the insiders game taking disaster funds from the taxpayers and giving it to it's contractors

Nationally we are seeing just how simple it is to take back funds allocated to help during a disaster. From a federal level all the way down to state levels, disaster allocations are always looked at as a pot of gold for local government as long as they..

RE: Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin on Status of Facilities Authorized Under Section 13(3) Federal Reserve Act

With a congress knowledgeable of the issues caused by the pandemic it is clear to me we can allocate the funds you have removed very quickly and more efficiently than before. This time we can get the money in the hands of business owners at a local level.

The 2020 pandemic disaster intensifies past disaster by pushing up the costs to rebuild by over 80% nationally

What started as a calm murmur of the possibility that disaster victims will be paying more for materials to recover after a disaster has turned into a loud distress siren. Between pandemic caused reduction in soft wood production and 20 import tariffs.

What proposals would you make to secure your future during the 2020 / 2021 declared pandemic?

When congress runs out of ways to not do anything for disaster relief they turn to the public and ask if we wouldnt mind if they repeat what the 111th congress did. Is that Ok America? I think its like handing in someones old research project.

You wait for someone else to speak. You think your congressional representatives will focus on your issues.

Do you think by not speaking with your congressional representatives disaster recovery assistance will just magically be created? Do you think our dysfunctional parties then your disaster recovery in mind? Learn the American Political Process and speak.
