L9WHA Upcoming Events & Programs
"Understanding Your Property Taxes"
February 9, 5:30 PM
On Tuesday Feb. 9 at 5:30, the Lower 9th Ward Homeownership Association kicked off it’s 2021 Homeowner Education Series with a program on “Understanding Your Property Taxes.”
Property taxes are due this year on February 28. If you don’t understand your tax bill, if you think you’re being charged too much, if your home has gone to tax sale, or if you’re a homeowner who just wants to know how their taxes are calculated, this program is for you.
The program was taught by M.A. Sheehan, long-time Housing Director for the L9WHA and an expert on helping individual homeowners navigate the assessment and tax payment process.
The L9WHA is also offering individual services to Lower 9th Ward homeowners who are having problems with their taxes.
To request services, or for more information on the program, please call us at 504-943-6000 or email

"The Front Yard Initiative FYI"
March 9, 5:30 PM
Join the Urban Conservancy and the Lower 9th Ward Homeownership Association to learn more about green infrastructure and how it can help reduce flooding on your property with FYI.
The Front Yard Initiative (FYI) is a program of the Urban Conservancy (UC), a nonprofit that has been on the forefront of equitable land use decisions since its founding in 2001. At the Front Yard Initiative we incentivize homeowners to remove excessive paving and replace it with green infrastructure to help reduce localized flooding. Green infrastructure is a type of water management that mimics natural water cycles. It can be implemented on very large scales for city projects all the way down to individual interventions on residential properties.

For more information on the program, please call us at 504-943-6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The program will take place online via Zoom.
