Eligible homeowners who sustained flood-related damage caused by Hurricane Katrina although their residences were outside the identified flood plain may qualify for federal grants of up to $150,000. This includes people who were stationed here at the time of the hurricane and have since been reassigned to other locations.

The application processing dates for the Keesler Service Center of the Hurricane Katrina Homeowners' Grant Program are April 20 through May 5.

Interested parties may call (228) 377-1378 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday for appointments to apply for the program. Appointments are at the center, located in the 2nd Air Force headquarters, 721 Hangar Road. However, the Keesler Service Center will make special arrangements to accommodate military members who meet all the requirements but are no longer in the local area. Reassigned and/or dislocated personnel can call the service center or contact their former organization at Keesler.

The federally funded program is administered by the Mississippi Development Authority. For more information, call or visit or
