Health & Safety Program Update

For homeowners that applied to the City of New Orleans, Health and Safety Program in 2019, there have been some recent changes in the process of the program.  The Office of Community Development will no longer directly implement the program.  That responsibility has been given to three (3) community non-profit organizations:

  • Rebuilding Together New Orleans
  • St. Bernard Project
  • NewCorp, Inc

All questions regarding the application process and eligibility requirements can be directed to the organizations.
