On March 5, Governor Edwards announced the launch of a new program that will help Louisiana renters and landlords experiencing financial hardship as a result of the pandemic. This program expands the rental benefit for those in need by paying past due rent back to April 2020 and up to three months of forward rent.
If you are a renter or a landlord who was adversely affected by the pandemic, you may be eligible for this program. You may apply for assistance at www.LAStateRent.com. An information flyer is attached explaining the application process.
If you need help applying for assistance you may call (877) 459-6555.
