In 2021, we used the power of virtual meetings to offer two classes on home buying and homeownership. The L9WHA kicked off an education series targeting current and future homeowners. Each class was streamed on Facebook and stored on the L9WHA YouTube channel. Some of this year’s topics included, “Understanding Your Property Taxes, Foreclosure Intervention, and Hurricane Preparation of Homeowners.” The seminars were facilitated by L9WHA staff and the guest speakers included Giazzlyn Duncan, Louisiana Fair Housing, Director of Homeownership Protection and Errol Williams, City of New Orleans Tax Assessor, and local realtors.
Our vision is to use both virtual and in person classes to prepare future homeowners for the home-buying process, in addition to creating an understanding about the responsibilities of homeownership.
White Paper: Homeownership is Affordable Housing
By MA Sheehan (Former Housing Director, L9WHA)
"Homeownership supports the housing needs of lower income people and the communities in which they live in a way that renting cannot. This affordability holds true not just for the homeowners themselves—even into the next generation—but for government at all levels."
