HOUSING ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

HOUSING ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS

One of the primary objectives of the CDBG program is the preservation of existing housing stock. During the 2005-2006 fiscal year the City of Kenner housing programs were severely impacted by the effects of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita which devastated the metropolitan New Orleans and Gulf Coast areas. Sub- recipients and contractors alike were affected by this storm, resulting in a record low number of owner-occupied homes assisted. The loss of the Redwood Apartments complex greatly reduced the number of affordable housing units available within the City of Kenner.
