The Louisiana Housing Corporation will release funding guidelines May 15 for both the Neighborhood Landlord Rental Program and the Multifamily Restoration Gap Program by issuing two separate Notifications of Funding Availability. Between the two programs, more than $74 million will be made available to landlords and developers to repair, reconstruct or create new rental units in Louisiana.
The two programs aim to provide additional rental housing units across the state especially in the 10 HUD-designated parishes that were most impacted and distressed from the 2016 flood events.
Program seminars to answer NOFA-specific questions will take place:
Wednesday, May 17, 3 p.m. East Baton Rouge Parish Library – Main Library 7711 Goodwood Blvd., Baton Rouge, La. 70806
