The key to moving the Lower 9th Ward out of the poverty, disinvestment, and blight that followed the flood is to restore the core strengths that are central to the neighborhood's identitystrong family networks grounded in the ownership of homes.

How's the 9? 

House the 9 - Housing Resources

As advocates for housing, we remain focused on preserving and promoting homeownership.  

We are committed to:

          ...creating homeownership.  We network with organizations and agencies dedicated to providing affordable homeownership opportunities.              Help is available with homeowner education classes, financing options, credit counseling, and more.  Owning a home may be more             

          affordable than paying rent!

          ...preserving homeownership.  Do you have a clear title on your property?  Do you have a will?  Are you eligible for an age or           

          disability freeze?  Are you a 100% disabled veteran?  Do you have pending code violations?  We have information that may benefit

          many homeowners.  

          ...supporting homeonwers in maintaining their homes.  We strive to connect homeowners with resources for minor home

          maintenance projects or moderate repairs.  Low-income families, the elderly and disabled are among those assisted by our non-

          profit partners.  

The L9WHA is YOUR connection to resources and services.

Road Home housing grants issues with non-compliance

If you have received a letter or lawsuit demanding you repay your Road HOme grant, or you are still trying to rebuild your home, please call us!  We will review your Road Home file and discuss it with you.

Our file review will focus on:

  • If you experienced contractor fraud or theft

  • If you were required to give your insurance money to your mortgage company

  • if you incurred rental expenses between 2008-2016

  • If Road Home made a mistake in calculating your grant amount

Our goal is to help you generate Road Home funding to rebuild or repair your home, but we want to at least help you reduce or eliminate your debt to Road Home.


The best way to determine if you qualify for assistance is to contact our office with
