Southwest Louisiana – On November 18, 2020, representatives from FEMA met with owners and managers of multifamily properties about two programs geared to house displaced residents. This event was facilitated by State Representative Phillip Tarver of District 36.
The Multifamily Lease & Repair (MLR) program allows FEMA to lease and report/make improvements to existing multifamily rental property for the purpose of providing temporary housing to eligible applicants who are displaced due to Hurricane Laura. To learn more about the program and what qualifications that must be met to participate, visit www.fema.gov/fact-sheet/multifamily-lease-and-repair-program.

Jennings at email@example.com or John Clemons at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 5 p.m. EST Nov. 25, 2020. The subject line needs to read “RFI 70FBR621I00000001 Response: Multi-Lease and Repair (NLR), DR-4559-LA”.
For the Direct Lease Housing program, FEMA is seeking property managers in Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, Grant, Jeff Davis, Rapides, Vernon and adjacent parishes within a reasonable commute distance.
