HUD Official, Landrieu To Meet For Funding For Iberville Projects In New Orleans
Written by 

LandrieuHUD Assistant Secretary Sandra B. Henriquez will join Mayor Mitch Landrieu and HANO Administrative Receiver David Gilmore to officially announce the Housing Authority of New Orleans will receive a $30.5 million HUD Choice Neighborhood Implementation Grant.



The funding will be used to redevelop the distressed housing at Iberville public housing development and revitalize the Treme neighborhood.

New Orleans is one of five cities to receive a first-ever Choice Neighborhood Implementation grant. The other cities are Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Seattle. 

Iberville has been a controversial housing project due to its close proximity to Canal Street, the business district and the French Quarter.  It was seriously damaged due to Katrina.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
