Press Release

Baton Rouge, LA - Congressman Garret Graves (R-Capital Region) announced today that FEMA has issued an additional waiver of the 60-day proof of loss requirement in response to a deadline extension request he sent to FEMA’s Acting Administrator on May 1, 2017. Louisiana victims of the August 2016 flood event now have until September 1, 2017 to provide evidence of losses and to request payment for all covered losses.

"This is a small, but important victory for flood survivors who continue to struggle with the painfully frustrating flood insurance process," said Graves.

Graves’ office was notified of the additional waiver by the Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration.  Congressman Graves’ May 1 request can be read here. Today’s notification can be read here.
