Disaster Response+Recovery

Weathering disasters together.

Just as with past disasters — through all the hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, and winter (yes, winter) storms — LCPA is committed to keeping you updated on additional resources and disaster assistance as it becomes available. We work closely with federal and state agencies to ensure the concerns of CPAs and taxpayers are well represented, especially in times of disaster.

Response Ready: A Message from Our CEO

We, like all Louisiana residents, are aware of the devastating impacts of Hurricane Ida and know too well that we have a long road to recovery ahead. While the safety of your family and staff is paramount, we also understand the potential impact on the filing deadlines. Our Advocacy Team remains hard at work providing assistance in these difficult times.

The impact of Ida, or any storm, is uncertain. What is certain, is our dedication to providing the necessary support and advocating for your causes. 

Ron Gitz, CPA, CGMA

The AICPA Disaster Recovery Guide is a great resource to add to your website and share with members, even before a weather situation hits. This comprehensive guide, created in partnership with the American Red Cross, is an easy-to-read tool for members and the public, with several good checklists to follow, both before and after an unfortunate event.
