Budget Committee Approves $11.6M in Federal Funding for Emergency Rental Assistance Program; Full Council to Consider Next Week

NEW ORLEANS - The Council's Budget Committee recommended approval today of $11.6M in federal funding for the City’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program.

The rental assistance funding is part of the recently passed federal Coronavirus relief bill. Congress approved the Coronavirus Relief Fund in late 2020. The fund, administered by the US Treasury, provides $25B in Emergency Rental Assistance funding to local governments. Cities with populations of at least 200,000 can apply directly to the US Treasury for rental assistance funding. The City applied and received an $11.6M allocation.

A Message from Councilmember Brossett Regarding the New Capdau Home for the Aged

NEW ORLEANS- Three years after approving its development, I take immense pride in the reality of the Capdau Home for the Aged at the original Pierre A. Capdau School site at 3821 Franklin Ave.
