Make It Right Foundation

New Orleans, Louisiana



Established in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the nonprofit is rebuilding 150 affordable, green, storm-resistant homes in New Orleans’ devastated Lower Ninth Ward to help former residents resettle their neighborhood and rebuild their lives. This grant enables Make It Right to develop and refine a strategic plan to guide its future direction, governance, and expansion.
