Don’t make homeowners take a backseat to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome

On Monday, March 26th, the Jindal administration announced a plan to redirect hurricane recovery money from housing and other disaster programs to fund improvements to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Louisiana Housing Alliance opposes this plan and believes that the State of Louisiana should prioritize its neighborhoods and communities and honor its commitment to hurricane impacted parishes. 

These federal disaster recovery dollars should not go to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

An investment in housing is an investment in economic development.

Be sure to tell the governor why housing is important to you in your signiture.
