Catholic Charities has limited funds available to help Louisiana families who were forced to evacuate by Hurricane Ida from parishes that are declared a disaster by FEMA.  Funds can help with costs such as fuel for vehicles, meals, or other expenses.

Unfortunately, we do not have funding for hotel stays.

  • A one-time payment of $50 per household
  • Applicants must prove residence in a Louisiana parish that is declared a Category A Disaster Area
  • You will need to provide ONE of the following if your application is selected.
    • Copy of LA Driver’s License OR
    • Copy of LA Identity Card OR
    • Copy of Utility Bill in Applicant’s name
  • This is not first-come, first-served. Applications will be selected at random.
  • Catholic Charities will process a limited number of applications each day as long as funds remain available.
  • Please do not apply more than once.  It will not help your chances of being selected.  Duplicates will be removed before selections are made.
  • If chosen you will receive an email with further instructions
    • You will be directed to make an appointment for financial assistance pick-up within the Houston area.

Additional resources and information are available on the Catholic Charities Disaster Recovery Program page.
