Housing Authority of New Orleans


Recommended Posts

The Housing Authority of New Orleans is a housing authority in New Orleans, Louisiana tasked with providing housing to low-income residents. The public housing in New Orleans has been subject to federal control for a number of years prior to Hurricane Katrina. After the storm, many of the public housing units were destroyed by decision of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These housing projects in New Orleans have also been home to important cultural contributions, such as the birth of Bounce music. Here is a list of projects owned by the Housing Authority:

C.J. Peete (Magnolia)

Guste (Melpomene)

W.P. Cooper (Calliope)

St. Thomas

St. Bernard





Press Park


Christopher Homes

Most of these project were some of the most notiously dangerous housing projects in the United States and after Hurricane Katrina struck the city, most of them have been demolished for redevelopment.
