Hardship Assistance Grants: Hurricane Ida

Share This

Less than two weeks ago Hurricane Ida ravaged parts of Southeastern Louisiana. Power lines were torn down, water was left undrinkable, homes are damaged and destroyed and most unfortunately, lives have been lost. For many, the recovery process has only just started. This is a time when we must all come together to help our neighbors and rebuild our communities. To help aid in this recovery, the Louisiana Federation of Teachers has partnered with the American Federation of Teachers to provide hardship assistance to members impacted by Hurricane Ida.

This relief funding is intended to help cover some of our member's expenses incurred from evacuation, home damage, or loss of personal property. If you live in any of the following parishes and experienced financial hardship due to Hurricane Ida, you are welcome to apply for funding, using this link: awa.knack.aft.org/aftrelief
