Fair Housing Center Offers Assistance to Gustav and Ike-Affected Homeowners

Posted on 15. Sep, 2008 by

The Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center (GNOFHAC) has expanded its Hurricane Relief Project to assist homeowners affected by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. The Hurricane Relief Project provides counseling to homeowners with issues related to insurance claims, mortgages, SBA loans, contractors, disaster recovery programs, and the Road Home Program. Homeownership Specialists are available now to help homeowners navigate through the recovery process.

The GNOFHAC, in collaboration with the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA), launched the Hurricane Relief Project in April 2006 to assist homeowners affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Since then, the GNOFHAC has helped hundreds of homeowners negotiate affordable mortgage repayment terms, receive fair settlement of insurance claims, and receive equitable compensation from the Road Home Program. In light of the damage done by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike, the GNOFHAC will now offer assistance to homeowners in South Louisiana who were impacted by these storms. Homeowners should call 504-596-2100 or 877-445-2100 to speak to a homeownership specialist.

The GNOFHAC has also created a Resource Guide for residents impacted by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike that includes information on how to file an insurance claim, deal with your mortgage company, apply for FEMA assistance, apply for a SBA loan, deal with contractors, and seek out other assistance in the rebuilding process.
