New Orleans Call to Action: Petition for Affordable Housing
We are asking our friends and supporters in New Orleans to help us urge the Louisiana Housing Corporation (LHC) to approve the 18-unit affordable apartment building we're building as part of our Holy Cross Project in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. The affordable housing project is now in grave danger. Our leadership in Baton Rouge is failing the Lower 9th Ward in withholding approvals to release funding that has been lined up for three years. We have learned that staff of the LHC and commissioners are not likely to support the project due to per unit costs – even though the project was already approved and the estimated costs have since come down. If the LHC does not pass the resolution for the 18-unit apartments, they will kill this project and deny to Lower 9th Ward families the decent housing they deserve. If you're a New Orleans resident, please our letter today.
