FEMA Transitional Sheltering Initiative
Click for information to Louisiana residents on how to receive assistance for hotel or motel costs that they may have incurred as a result of Hurricane Gustav.
The State of Louisiana and the American Red Cross have collaborated to provide a public view of current shelters listed in the Red Cross National Shelter System. This information is updated as regularly as possible and may be immediately out of date. Due to the complexity of a disaster response, anyone who uses this information should be prepared to make adjustments to their immediate plans.
