The extended deadline for Louisiana victims of the 2016 floods to potentially get more financial help is quickly approaching.
It's this Friday, a date set by Governor John Bel Edwards to give homeowners more time to fill out a survey for a shot at assistance through the Restore Louisiana program.
At last word, more than 14,000 homeowners impacted by the flooding had been offered grants totaling nearly a half-billion-dollars.
The governor opted to lengthen the time for survey filing when Congress altered federal disaster guidelines making more flood victims eligible for Restore Louisiana assistance.
