The Red Cross will provide $450 to households whose homes were confirmed to have been destroyed or sustained major damage from Hurricane Laura. Most people whose homes were destroyed or sustained major damage from Hurricane Laura will be contacted directly through an email, text message or phone call directly from the Red Cross over the next several weeks. We strongly encourage parish residents affected by Hurricane Laura to apply for federal Disaster Assistance at or by calling 800-621-3362.

If residents do not receive a call by September 25, 2020 and have substantial damage, please call 800-621-3362. The Red Cross will not be calling any numbers that are outside of a Louisiana Area Code. Be sure to provide a Louisiana phone number that is easily accessible.
