We learned that thousands of flood victims in and around Baton Rouge, Louisiana, lack the documentation of home ownership that is required to establish their eligibility for FEMA disaster assistance. Through the efforts of the Center and Stanford Law School, a mobile app has been developed to help flood victims gather the necessary documents to establish home ownership and complete FEMA submissions. The app will also direct them to appropriate legal services in the region, based on their income qualifications.
