Hurricane Ida made landfall this week near Port Fourchon, Louisiana, as a category 4 hurricane, bringing estimated wind speeds of 150 mph and devastating flooding to communities throughout Louisiana and Mississippi.

In response, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) said it is working closely with state and local home builder associations in the region to meet the needs of members who are affected by storms and to provide resources to help them rebuild.

The Louisiana Home Builders Association established the Louisiana Home Builders Disaster Relief Fund (LHDRF) to assist communities and citizens within the impacted areas to recover and rebuild. 

The fund:

  • Provides disaster relief assistance to home builders in areas declared by the federal government or the State of Louisiana to be Disaster Areas to allow them to stay in business and begin to rebuild these areas;
  • Assists communities and citizens located in these Disaster Areas in rebuilding efforts;
  • Educates citizens about proper recovery and rebuilding procedures and the prevention of contractor fraud.

Donations are being accepted through the Louisiana Home Builders Disaster Relief Fund website, with credit cards or checks accepted. 

All donations are tax-deductible.

The American Red Cross is also accepting donations to support their life-saving response efforts in both Louisiana and Mississippi.

NAHB said it is also advising its members of the following resources for more information on Hurricane Ida:
