In our experience, these are the individuals most likely to be preyed upon by fraudulent contractors, misinformed about the processes by which they can attain assistance, and the most likely to end up in “rebuild limbo” years after their neighbors have rebuilt.

We know from our experience in New Orleans that assisting these individuals benefits the entire neighborhood, because the home that does not get rebuilt today becomes tomorrow’s blighted property.
