Lousiana Rebuilds <http://www.louisianarebuilds.info/>
Lack of information and resources are the two biggest challenges facing
hurricane affected residents trying to rebuild their lives. The
LouisianaRebuilds.info Survival Guide lists many free or low cost services
and programs that can help. While some resources are low-income household or
GNO area specific, the majority of programs are available to all residents
of the hurricane affected region.
View our Survival Guide here <http://www.louisianarebuilds.info/survival> .
There has been a surge in foreclosures in the Hurricane impacted areas of
Louisiana. If you were a Louisiana homeowner before the Hurricane and are
being threatened with foreclosure, ACORN Housing may be able to help.
They've stopped over 60 area foreclosures and have yet to lose one. They can
also help if you're having other problems with your mortgage lender, such as
negotiating payoffs so you have enough funds for rebuilding or getting an
affordable loan modification.

Homeowners section <http://www.louisianarebuilds.info/homeowners#financial>
