Andreanecia Morris Executive Director HousingNOLA
Last week, HousingNOLA announced the official start of a COVID-19 Short-Term Rental Pilot Program, which gives temporary housing and supportive services to the homeless or housing insecure families and young adults during the Pandemic.
The program aims to pair supportive services with temporary housing for homeless or housing insecure families and young adults.
“It’s been heartening and tremendously impressive to see all the ways our partners are stepping into this challenging time with programs to keep people stably housed and provide supportive services,” said Diane Yentel National Low-Income Housing Coalition President and CEO.
Program participants are referred through community partners like CASA New Orleans and Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights and will have their rent and utilities covered for three months while working with Community Navigators to achieve long-term housing.
Throughout the three months families in the program will receive help from supportive services to stabilize and secure long-term housing.
