Creating Affordable Housing
Providence Community Housing used its $300,000 DRFUS loan to complete the rehabilitation of 38 affordable homes throughout New Orleans’ Lafitte/Tremé neighborhood. This project is part of the comprehensive Faubourg Lafitte neighborhood redevelopment plan. The homes include 27 preserved single and duplex units that were moved from another site. The rehabilitated homes will be affordable rentals for families with 60 percent of incomes at or below the area median income. The units are all built to Enterprise Green Communities standards with energy efficient appliances, water heaters, and windows.
