A State of Emergency was declared in all four parishes in the Acadiana region. As of March 20 officials reported an estimated $2 million in road and water system repairs in addition to the not yet estimated cost of almost 1,400 damaged homes and affected families.
Where are the funds going? CFA has activated its Acadiana Disaster Fund as part of its relief, restoration and rebuilding efforts in Acadiana. All funds received will go to the fund. CFA will only grant to other 501 c(3) nonprofit organizations who are assisting those affected from the floods. CFA will not make grants to individuals. For individual assistance related to the floods, CFA urges individuals to call 232-help.
