FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Twenty Feet High and Storm Ready
United States. Federal Emergency Management Agency
From the document: "Life on the bayou isn't easy. But despite the hazards, hardships, and hurricanes, the Assevado family cannot imagine living anywhere else. [...] Rebuilding their home stronger and smarter always remained the family's goal. 'We like living on the bayou,' Assevado said. 'It's part of my husband's culture of being a fisherman.' Federal assistance helped make their goal a reality. The family received $30,000 from their insurance policy through the National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP's) Increased Cost of Compliance (ICC) program. They used that money to pay for elevating their home. The family also received federal assistance from The Road Home program instituted after Hurricane Katrina and a U. S. Small Business Administration loan."
