Request for Information (RFI)
One Table is a coordinated funding mechanism that seeks to enhance the ability to attract and deploy capital effectively and efficiently to advance community development initiatives within the urban core of New Orleans that expands opportunities for low- and middle-income families and revitalize underserved communities. One Table consists of financial institutions, governmental agencies, and housing and economic development partners that invest capital in high priority real estate projects. One Table in partnership with the City of New Orleans seeks responses from property owners and real estate developers for the acquisition, rehabilitation, construction, and preservation of residential, commercial or mixed-use developments along the Claiborne Corridor, in other high-impact areas such as the Lower 9th Ward, and in high-opportunity neighborhoods. The One Table partners have various financial (such as loans, grants, and/or equity) and technical assistance resources to spur investment in these areas.
