FEMA’s Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program has been extended by one month for Louisiana survivors affected by the August floods.
Eligible survivors were contacted by FEMA to advise of their continued eligibility.
Those eligible may stay in participating hotels and motels through the night of Monday, April 10 and must check out by Tuesday, April 11.
FEMA’s TSA program allows eligible survivors to stay in participating hotel and motel rooms that are billed directly to FEMA.
The TSA program is a short-term housing option, and eligible survivors should be actively looking for a long-term housing solution.
Following a mid-extension review of the TSA program, a number of applicants affected by the August floods may be found ineligible for continued hotel stays as of Saturday, March 25, 2017 with checkout on Sunday, March 26, 2017.
Applicants in the FEMA-supported program are alerted to their eligibility status either by phone or by case workers assigned to assist with long-term housing decisions.
