The Louisiana Legislative Hurricane Recovery Committee will hold two meetings in New Orleans this week to discuss the status of the Road Home Program, the Small Rental Program, and the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (both the elevation grants and storm shutter grants).

Committee chair Neil Abramson, a state rep from Uptown, says staff from the Office of Community Development will be on hand to answer questions from the committee and to help the public with any problems regarding their applications. The meetings are open to the public and the committee welcomes public comment.

The first meeting will be on Tuesday, August 17; the second will be Wednesday, August 18. Both meetings begin at 5 p.m. and will be held in the New Orleans City Council Chamber.
