Subject: RE: Resubmission: Louisiana Submission of Great Floods Non-Substantial Action Plan
Hello Mr. Forbes,
The Department has received and reviewed the State of Louisiana's non-substantial Action Plan Amendment (APA) 9. It is noted that APA 9 modifies the reimbursement award structure of the Restore Louisiana Homeowner Program, and provides a technical clarification of award caps related to certain components of the Program, including mobile homes and elevation in the cases of reconstruction. For the Restore Louisiana Homeowner Program, APA 9 increases the percentage of the award for eligible homeowners in Phases III VI from 50% to 100% of the eligible award amount. The Department notes that the implementation of the this amendment will affect the State's LMI overall benefit percentage, decreasing it from 63% to 58%, based on the State's estimate. While the State is currently on target to exceed the required overall benefit threshold of 55%, HUD will continue to closely monitor the State's progress in this area.
This email serves as HUD's acknowledgement of APA 9.
