A Win for our City: City Council Passes Housing Trust Fund Reforms

Posted on 15. Oct, 2015 by

Thanks to all of your advocacy and hard work, the New Orleans City Council unanimously passed reforms to our city housing trust fund. The newly reformed Neighborhood Housing Improvement Fund (NHIF) will put another important tool in our toolbox to create or repair housing that is affordable to New Orleans families.

Councilmember LaToya Cantrell championed this essential legislation to ensure these scarce housing funds were best utilized to expand housing opportunity throughout New Orleans. Thanks to your support of her efforts, we are one step closer to addressing the growing housing affordability crisis in our city that makes it harder for musicians, culture bearers, and long-time residents to afford a place to call home.

It’s clear from this unanimous vote that city leaders are taking notice.
