Solution 2 Reconstruction File Processing Version 6 12-28-2018

FAQ#: 74 published 2-7-2019

(State of Louisiana, Restore Louisiana Homeowners Program)

Solution 2 Applicants will be able to utilize their own floorplan designs. As such, the Recon Team will ensure that the tabular data in eGrants reflects the verified square footage of the original structure, only. Once the file has passed QC2, the Solution 2 CTA will coordinate with the homeowner and retrieve all relevant documentation, construction plans, and the contract with the General Contractor.

Once the Solution 2 CTA has collected all necessary documentation, the CTA will then verify if the square footage for the new construction plan is greater or less than the square footage of the original structure. For Solution 2 projects where total allowable square footage reconstructed is less than the allowable square footage of the original structure, the award will be based on $108.00 per allowed square foot of the reconstructed structure. If the reconstructed total allowable square footage is greater than the allowable square footage of the original structure, the award will be based on $108.00 per allowed square foot of the original structure. If the CTA determines that the new plan's square footage is less than the original structure's, the square feet tabular data will be updated to reflect the lesser square foot value (the file will be returned to QC2 to reverify the grant award in this situation).

After all issues with square footage are resolved, the CTA will notify the homeowner of any elevation requirements. The Homeowner will also be required to secure a preliminary elevation certificate prior to closing. Finally, the CTA will inform the homeowner of HUD's Green Building Standards prior to beginning the reconstruction process (note: Solution 2 and Solution 3 applicants are encouraged to follow Green Building Standards, but it is not required when the applicant executed their construction contract prior to grant award).
