posted by WJBO Newsradio - 

Thousands of homeowners impacted by the 2016 floods in Louisiana will be getting more financial help.

Gov. John Bel Edwards announced Monday the federal government has given a thumbs-up to Restore Louisiana fully reimbursing homeowner-funded repairs. The checks previously had been limited to 50% to all but the neediest homeowners.

Payments averaging almost $12,000 are expected to hit the mail this week.
