Elevation & Reconstruction Projects Projects


Since 2005, Jefferson Parish has annually integrated non-structural projects into resiliency for repetitive loss properties and in more recent years has placed a priority on properties outside of levee protection. Samples of homes elevated and reconstructed in Jefferson Parish are detailed below. Also there are a few videos to explain the grant application process.
