Alternative Housing Pilot Program (Louisiana Cottages)

Funded by FEMA, AHPP is a short-term initiative to offer quality, affordable housing to eligible families. The program will create 500 units of housing in four parishes:

  • Orleans
  • Jefferson
  • East Baton Rouge
  • Calcasieu

The units will primarily be sold for homeownership (322) but will also offer 87 rental units, with the final 91 units constructed at Jackson Barracks. The cottages will be available to families who are in continued need for housing as a result of the 2005 storms.
