Qualifying Private Nonprofit Houses of Worship in Louisiana may be Eligible for FEMA Grants


to cover Hurricane Laura-related expenses. Grants through FEMA’s Public Assistance program may cover costs to repair or replace facilities damaged during the hurricane. The program is funded by FEMA and the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. FEMA defines religious facilities as a church, synagogue, mosque, temple or other house of worship without regard to the religious character of the facility. No religious facility or house of worship may be excluded from this definition because leadership or membership in the organization is limited to persons who share a religious faith or practice.


Apply online at sba.gov/funding-programs/disaster-assistance. For questions about SBA disaster loans, call 800-659-2955 or email FOCWAssistance@sba.gov.
