Fun with Road Home Stats

All together, 4,591 closings. But that is less than hoped:
Louisiana's Road Home program won't hit its March goal for doling out 6,200 grants, partially because hundreds of homeowners are canceling appointments amid confusion about federally backed changes to the hurricane housing grant program.
The Road Home website has a download with all closings by parish, as well as total number of applications per parish.

As of March 22, 2007, in the five southeastern parishes with the most applications:
2.88 percent of Orleans applicants have closed (1360 out of 47,199)

5.65 percent of Jefferson applicants have closed (994 out of 17,577)

1.93 percent of St. Bernard applicants have closed (271 out of 14,034)

5.43 percent of St. Tammany applicants have closed (516 out of 9,488)

0.44 percent of Plaquemines applicants have closed (16 out of 3,600)
The site also has closings by zip code.

All options and benefits letters have been put on hold indefinitely due to the new disburstment policies enacted by hud. My "Golden Ticket" was to be mailed in 2 weeks.

At my closing on Monday, American title required me to sign documents stating that I will add the states OCD as an "additional insured" to my flood and casualty insurance. Won't this complicate matters when another casualty strikes and the checks will have to be made out to the state and recovery will be delayed until the state decides how much to release to the homeowner for damages not associated with Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
