affordable housing

This week on All Things New Orleans we'll discuss a new report revealing the high cost of living in the city with Cashuana Hill, Executive Director of the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center. Then we'll share another story from Bring Your Own, our live story-telling series. 

And Marvel Live will take over the Smoothie King Center this weekend; we'll chat with one of their strongest superheroes! 

American Can
Nina Feldman

Late last year, the American Can Apartments delivered eviction notices to many low-income tenants. The 268-unit complex near Bayou St. John had dozens of affordable units set aside for low-income people when it opened, 15 years ago. That was part of an agreement with the city. But that agreement has now expired. And as Nina Feldman reports for WWNO, the American Can evictions are not an isolated thing. Thousands of affordably priced housing units, owned by private developers, are set to expire in coming years.
