Lafayette Parish Hurricane Recovery Resources

Lafayette Parish Hurricane Delta Damage Assessment

Lafayette Consolidated Government encourages Lafayette Parish residents whose home or business has experienced storm damage, including wind, and/or flooding as a result of Hurricane Delta, to fill out a Damage Assessment Form. This information not only documents the impact of the storm on individuals, families and businesses, it also assists the parish in qualifying for future federal funding. The form can be completed online or by phone at 337-291-5075.

Louisiana Disaster Preliminary Damage Self-Report

Complete this survey to report damage to your home or business (structures only, no vehicles). Information collected will help parish, state, and federal authorities understand how and where locations were impacted by this disaster event. This survey is to be used only for reporting damage or loss of personal property. Completion of this survey is not an application for or guarantee of assistance, nor does it initiate a claim to your insurance provider.

Stay Informed
Connect Lafayette Alert System: Alerts include both emergency and non-emergency announcements specific to areas where residents live, such as sandbag information, road closures, construction, public works projects, special events and more.

Hospitality Hub: A coordinated effort between Lafayette Consolidated Government, Lafayette Travel, Lafayette Economic Development Authority, One Acadiana, and Downtown Lafayette to provide resources for those affected by disasters needing to navigate Lafayette and the surrounding areas.

FEMA Individual Disaster Assistance

Homeowners and renters in Beauregard, Lafayette, Rapides, St. Landry and St. Martin parishes may now apply for federal disaster assistance for uninsured and underinsured damage and losses resulting from Hurricane Delta.

To be eligible for federal disaster aid, storm damage and losses from the hurricane and flooding must have occurred as a result of Delta from Oct. 6 to Oct. 10, 2020. The deadline to register is Dec. 16, 2020.

Acadia, Calcasieu, Cameron, Jefferson Davis and Vermilion parishes were previously included in the federal declaration to assist homeowners and renters.

If you have already registered with FEMA for Hurricane Laura, you must register again to qualify for help after Delta. When there are two or more disasters declared for the same designated area, FEMA works to ensure applicants receive all eligible help while preventing duplication of federal benefits.

You may register with FEMA by:

Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption or CapTel should update FEMA with their specific number assigned to that service.

Take photos of all damage and save all receipts.

FEMA’s disaster assistance programs are designed to help with grants for basic repairs to make survivors’ homes safe, sanitary and secure and to provide a temporary place to live while survivors develop their recovery plans.

  • Hurricane Delta Structural Repairs: In Lafayette Parish, home and business owners whose property was damaged by Hurricane Delta are required to apply for a building permit when repairing, adding to, or altering a structure. Repair work done by nonprofit volunteer groups also requires a building permit. Louisiana statutes require work to be done by a licensed contractor or as an owner-builder. The Lafayette Consolidated Government Development and Planning Department will make building permits for Hurricane Delta repairs a priority.

    Residents are urged to hire a reputable, licensed contractor, and hire someone who is licensed for the specific work needed. Before hiring a contractor, residents should verify the company’s credentials by contacting the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors at (225) 765-2301 or (800) 256-1392, or visit http://www.lslbc.louisiana.gov/contractor-search/.

    Anyone with questions regarding the safety of a structure or whether a permit is required to repair damage should contact the Development and Planning Department from 7 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Friday, either by calling the Permitting Division at (337) 291-8461 or visiting in person at 220 W. Willow Street, Building B in Lafayette. For additional information, contact Director of Development and Planning Mary Sliman at 337-291-8013.

Lafayette Parish Storm Debris Sorting and Collection

Monitor progress and reference zones, truck locations and areas where crews have removed debris 

Because area landfills are permitted to accept certain materials, not all flood debris is taken to the same location. Properly separating items allows crews to determine where debris will be taken, and it helps pickup happen in a timelier manner.

Items should not be placed in bags and should be separated into the following categories:

  • Electronics: Television, computer, stereo, phone, DVD player
  • Large Appliances :Refrigerator, washer/dryer, air conditioner, stove, water heater, dishwasher
  • Hazardous Waste: Oil, battery, pesticide, paint, cleaning supplies, compressed gas
  • Vegetative Debris: Tree branches, leaves, logs, plants (May be placed in containers no bigger than 35 gallons which weigh less than 50 pounds)
  • Construction Debris: Building materials, drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, plumbing
  • Household Garbage: Bagged garbage, food, paper, packaging

Debris placement guidelines from Lafayette Consolidated Government:

  • Place debris curbside.
  • Do not place near or on trees, poles, fire hydrants, meters or utilities.
  • Debris should not block roadway.
  • Debris placed on the sidewalk will not be picked up.
  • Secure appliance doors.
