Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Pontchartrain Park Community Development Corp.

New Orleans, Louisiana



Established after Hurricane Katrina, the resident-led corporation and its development partners are engaged in a neighborhood planning process to reconstruct 556 affordable, “beyond green” homes in the Pontchartrain Park community, a multigenerational African American enclave. This two-year grant accelerates home construction and allows the corporation to meet its design-build aspirations for affordability and energy efficiency.
