Shelter at Home program enables eligible individuals or families whose homes were damaged in the August flooding to take shelter in their own homes while they rebuild, instead of having to stay in a hotel, rental or mass shelter.


Please call Vermilion Parish Police Jury office if you or anyone in Vermilion Parish that you know got water in their home. Please email pictures if you have any. We are compiling a list for Federal Assistance with FEMA. (337) 898-4300 or email


If you suffered water damages as a result of the August 13 flood, The Baptist Association of Southeast Louisiana is a disaster relief program that will gut out your sheet rock and spray to kill the mold that is growing in your home free of charge.

If you need assistance please call Stan Statham, Director of Missions at (985) 839-3827 or on his cell at (985) 515-4367, or you can email him at

As cleanup efforts begin, residents, businesses, and property owners are reminded to purchase the proper permits for flood damage repair and reconstruction. In most cases a minimal residential repair permit is all that is required and can be obtained at the Vermilion Parish Courthouse, 2nd Floor in the Vermilion Parish Police Jury Permit Office. Substantially damaged homes will be subject to additional requirements and permitting. Make sure to call VPPJ Permit Department at 337-898-4300 if you have any questions.
