Appication for $1.4 billion housing grant.

LAFAYETTE -- Louisiana housing officials are pursuing a $1.4 billion grant to provide long-term housing to an estimated 480,000 evacuees across the state.

Lafayette Housing Authority Director Walter Guillory called a meeting Tuesday to ask area elected officials to contact the Department of Housing and Urban Development to voice their support of the grant.

"It's something new," Guillory said. "We've got to get the powers-that-be at HUD to get on board."
