Case Management Program Helps Thousands of Displaced Families Transition to Permanent Housing

The state of Louisiana paired with the Housing Authority of New Orleans (HANO), launched a case management program and a statewide hot line aimed at helping thousands of families in the Disaster Housing Assistance Program (DHAP) transition into permanent housing before the program shuts down in August.

“This case management program grew out of the united push earlier this year by the state, the Congressional delegation and nonprofits to extend disaster housing assistance for Katrina and Rita victims,” said Paul Rainwater, Executive Director of the Louisiana Recovery Authority, “We are using the time remaining in the program to ensure eligible households are transitioned to the permanent housing voucher program and that other families can find housing that is safe, sustainable and affordable.”
