FEMA assistance, mosquito control, garbage pickup, etc.

St. Charles Parish officials have just verified with FEMA that residents can register for disaster assistance prior to the parish obtaining authorization for Individual Assistance (IA). If you are a resident interested in registering for IA, call 1-800-621-3362 or register online at Please note that residents MUST notify their insurance companies of any property damages prior to obtaining IA. In the event St. Charles Parish becomes eligible for IA, those residents that have already registered for disaster assistance will not need to register again.

FEMA now has temporary housing assistance available for St. Charles Parish residents on a case-by-case basis. Call 1-800-621-3362 to apply.

Reminder that pre-application for Disaster Food Stamps can be completed at or calling 1-888-LA-HELPU.

Residential garbage pickup in Willowridge (Luling) will take place tomorrow morning. It had been previously delayed due to street flooding. Areas in Montz were serviced Saturday with the exception of areas with flooded streets.

Mosquito Control has completed its first post-Isaac heavy spraying of the parish and will begin its second pass today.
