Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent levee system failures destroyed more than 275,000 homes and disrupted countless lives across the Gulf Coast. For the past 10 years, passionate residents have been working with non-profit, community-based organizations to rebuild their homes and create a more equitable and resilient New Orleans. In early 2014, the Foundation for Louisiana's TOGETHER Initiative convened a group of residents and non-profits to develop strategies for improving housing policies and increasing equity in New Orleans. What emerged from the TOGETHER Initiative was a desire to build off community engagement efforts since 2005, to keep the momentum going beyond recovery and plan for the future of housing and neighborhoods in New Orleans. HousingNOLA grew out of these discussions, and this Preliminary Report is just the first benchmark. The HousingNOLA process will continue to engage New Orleans residents and key stakeholders in a community-led planning process that will create a road map for addressing housing needs over the next ten years.
