Commissioner Donelon & Governor Blanco Urge Quick Reply From
Insurers For Road Home Program Requests
Released: November 22, 2006
Commissioner of Insurance Jim Donelon and Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco have
issued an urgent notice to insurance companies with Hurricane Katrina or Rita claims
requesting that they expedite all requests they receive from Louisiana's Road Home
The Road Home program is designed to help Louisiana residents get back into their
homes by compensating eligible homeowners up to $150,000 for their hurricane-related
losses, minus any insurance payments (with the exception of contents coverage) that
the homeowner received, in accordance with federal regulations. The Road Home program
must verify insurance policyholder data with the companies in order to calculate
and distribute financial assistance.
Insurers who have not yet designated a Road Home contact person within their company
are also being asked to do so as quickly as possible so that Road Home requests
can be processed without further delay.
The Road Home program was created by Governor Blanco, the Louisiana Recovery Authority,
and the Office of Community Development. The program is funded by the U.S. Department
of Housing and Urban Development. For more information, visit www.road2la.org.
Note: Urgent Notice is attached
