GM has introduced financial assistance for those affected by Hurricane Ida. According to a bulletin sent to dealers, the new disaster relief program involves a $1,000 cash incentive good toward the purchase of just about every new Chevy, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicle, or $500 off the cost of a car lease.

To qualify, you'll need to show a copy of an insurance claim form listing damage caused as a result of Hurricane Ida. The offer in question is focused on over two dozen areas of Louisiana. Like most disaster relief programs, the discount can be combined with most incentives like rebates and APR deals.

Popular vehicles like the Chevy Silverado are eligible, and our analysis finds that there are practically no exclusions apart from the C8 Corvette. You don't have to be a current GM customer to take advantage of the offer, which could make this an appealing option for those who need to replace a car or truck.

We think it's worth noting that GM's 2022 lineup is eligible for the promo, too. On closer analysis, the list even includes the recently-announced 2022 Silverado pickup. The program has an end date of November 1st, so we recommend checking with your local dealer to confirm your actual eligibility and options.

As we reported last week, Ford introduced Employee Pricing involving A-Plan Pricing for Hurricane Ida victims. Although your choice between a Ford or GM car may come down to personal preference, these incentives could help reduce the cost to replace a car in a time when new car prices are especially high.
