Affordable Housing for
Post-Katrina Louisiana

Forest Park, a 284-unit community in Algiers, Louisiana is a multi-family property re-built after major damage was inflicted on it from Hurricane Katrina. It is a nineteen-building complex that includes 42 one-bedroom units, 160 two-bedroom units and 72 three-bedroom units.

Total cost
$ 20,709,238

All units—100% of the households served—are at or below 60% AMI. The property underwent major rehabilitation between 2007 and 2008, including resting and remediation for mold, repair of all hurricane damage, replacement of all roofs, installation of new kitchens, new flooring, and energy-efficient appliances and windows, together with complete upgrading of all electrical systems and plumbing infrastructure.
