The homeowner survey has been offered to select residents in 7 Parishes in greater New Orleans. In partnership with the Urban Institute, a nonprofit, non-partisan research organization, we want to learn about your experiences with property insurance and information you have received about your home’s risks from hazards, disasters, and other emergencies that might affect your home. This survey can only be successful with the generous participation of people like you. To take the survey, you must be a homeowner living in a home in the greater New Orleans area that you acquired in the last 10 years. As a token of our appreciation, you will receive a no-fee $50 Amazon gift card.

As part of this work, funded through the National Academies of Science’s Gulf Research Program, we are responsible for producing public tools that benefit the residents of greater New Orleans. The survey results may also help leaders communicate about risk more clearly and make it easier for homeowners to protect their homes and property against risks. As results become available, you can check this site for links to public tools and resources.

Because the residents we reached out to are meant to be representative of all residents in their parish, it is very important that we hear from each of you about whether you are willing to take the survey. Because we have not yet heard from many of you, we are planning to knock on your door to invite you to take the survey starting in late March. If you know you want to take the survey, please complete it asap so that we know we don’t have to come by and knock on your door!

Below are images of some mailers that we have sent to you. Please look out for them to take the survey online at (and enter your Code found on your postcard or on the envelope of your paper survey), by mail (fill out the survey on paper and drop in the mailbox using the pre-stamped envelope), or by phone with our hotline at (504) 267-3396.  If you have questions, feel free to call our survey hotline or email us at
