The Partnerships that Build Community statewide tour makes a stop in Jonesboro on Wednesday, August 17th. Sponsored by the Louisiana Housing Corporation (LHC) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development division the session will take place at 10:00am in the meeting room of the Jonesboro Town Hall.
Newly appointed leaders, LHC Executive Director Joshua G. Hollins and USDA Rural Development State Director Deidre Deculus Robert, will lead the tour in an effort to strengthen partnerships, improve housing services statewide, and increase the utilization of critical housing programs for urban and rural communities throughout Louisiana.
Members of LHC’s executive team will provide updates on new and existing programs, including the Developer Assistance Plan – a new program that aims to provide relief to housing developers experiencing rising costs. Attendees will learn about upcoming funding opportunities, homeownership programs, energy and water assistance, the forthcoming adjudicated properties initiative and much more. USDA Rural Development will discuss programs that impact housing in urban communities.
Building and assisting communities is the core of Louisiana Housing Corporation (LHC) and their mission to ensure that every Louisiana resident is granted an opportunity to obtain safe, affordable, energy-efficient housing. LHC reaches this goal through a multitude of housing partnerships and energy programs including HOME, LIHEAP, Neighborhood Landlord, Section 811, and Continuum of Care funding to name a few. The presentation will include Statewide and Regional data showing LHC’s ongoing commitment to Louisiana affordable housing and energy assistance.
