New Report: The State of Housing Recovery in Louisiana 2008

KATRINA HOUSING CRISIS STILL HAMPERS GULF COAST RECOVERY
Three years after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita battered the homes of hundreds of thousands of Louisianans, too many residents are still unable to afford to rebuild their homes or find an affordable place to rent, according to the new housing report by PolicyLink.
The report, A Long Way Home: The State of Housing Recovery in Louisiana 2008, analyzes the three major federally funded housing recovery programs – the Road Home (for homeowners) and the small rental repair and large rental programs. Together, these programs allocate nearly $12 billion in federal recovery funds to restore housing in Louisiana.
