If Hurricane Katrina damaged your home, you could be eligible for storm mitigation money.

Thousands of Louisiana residents could get up to $7,500 dollars.

The state is mailing out applications to more than 100,000 victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Those who've applied for the state's Road Home Program will receive the forms.

Homeowners would use the money to make their homes more hurricane resistant.
