BATON ROUGE, La. – Survivors in all 25 Louisiana parishes eligible for Individual Assistance affected by Hurricane Ida can now sign up for temporary, fiber-reinforced sheeting to cover their damaged roofs until permanent repairs are made.

Operation Blue Roof, a free program managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in coordination with FEMA, has expanded its mission to the parishes designated for FEMA’s Individual Assistance program. The Blue Roof service is available to homes that serve as a primary residence and to permanently-occupied rental properties.

The 25 parishes designated for Individual Assistance are: Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberia, Iberville, Jefferson, Lafourche, Livingston, Orleans, Plaquemines, Pointe Coupee, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Martin, St. Mary, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne, Washington, West Baton Rouge and West Feliciana. 

To register for the Blue Roof Program, call 888-ROOF-BLU or 888-766-3258. There may be significant delays in reaching a specialist because of the large number of affected homes eligible for the Blue Roof Program. If your call goes directly to voicemail, hang up and try calling again. You may also visit
