City of New Orleans secures FEMA grant to elevate historic Zulu Club building

Posted on:

New Orleans City Hall secures the first-ever elevation grant for a non-residential property. The Zulu headquarters qualified for FEMA’s Flood Mitigation Assistance Program because it was insured by FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program. The city’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness worked with the Zulu organization to write a Flood Mitigation Assistance Program funding application. The $340,000 federal grant will be used to elevate the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club headquarters at N. Broad St to prevent future flooding.

The Zulu Club building has flooded repeatedly during the last years’ street floodings and the club was wondering how long they would be able to stay in the Treme area.

Roubion Shoring is proud of the City of New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness for their work to protect an important and authentic piece of New Orleans History and Culture. We are glad to learn that the Zulu Headquarters soon will be high and dry during our tropical rainstorms.
