Action Plan Amendment 10 approved by the state of Louisiana OCD-DRU without review by the Restore Louisiana Task Force? Or was their a meeting and the public was not invited.

FAQ#: 93 published 3-2-2019

It is suspected that the Restore Louisiana Task Force violated Louisiana State Public Meeting Laws and / or has approved an action plan amendment without discussing the action plan with the Restore Louisiana Homeowners Task Force.


NOTES: Currently we have a document request that is being delayed by the state that will disclose if a public meeting did take place or if the OCD-DRU did not request the task force to read, review and approve Action Plan Amendment 10. 

THIS POST HAS NOT BEEN EDITED AS OF 3-2-2019 TO INCLUDE RESOURCES AND RESEARCH.

Restore Louisiana 2016 Floods Public Laws 114-223, 114-254 and 115-31

Comite Diversion Canal Project Public Law 115–123

HUD allocated virtually all funding for unmet needs and established administrative requirements via two Federal Register notices.

----------- NOTES _________

I received a Federal Registry notice of HUD approving the states Renters Assistance program for $40 million.
The notice of the federal registry post was received Feb. 12, 2019 three days before the Restore Louisiana Task Force was to vote on the change.
The $40 million in rental assistance allocations was granted and approved by HUD and officially on Feb. 19, 2019 the day which the state published the APA 11 for viewing before the public comment period is open.
It appears that parts of the APA 11 were actually submitted in APA 10.
When many of you requested a copy of APA 10 most of you were told by the states DOA legal department that is overseeing the OCD-DRU that APA 10 was renamed to APA 11.
That was a false statement and can be verified by visiting the Action Plans posted for the Grant Floods. You will now see APA 10 is published but they claim it is pending approval.

The issues:
1. Restore Louisiana Task Force had a meeting and approved APA 10 without public notice of the meeting which violates the states Public Meeting Laws.
2. Restore Louisiana Task Force voted on an action plan that was moving more than $8 million in federal assistance and did not offer the Action Plan to the public for comment.
3. The state violated HUD policy for notice to the public regarding action plans.
4. The state did not enforce state public meeting laws.
