Head Says NO(AH) More

Posted By on Thu, Jul 31, 2008 at 12:07 AM

During today's City Council committee hearing regarding New Orleans Affordable Homeownership (NOAH), a nonprofit agency hired to remediate homes for the elderly and low-income homeowners, Councilmember Stacy Head proposed a resolution that the City Council  pledged that “no future moneys should be allocated to NOAH.”

     The Nagin administration has stated the NOAH remediation program was suspended in July 2007 and is no longer receiving city funding for operation. NOAH’s offices are located in the Aamco Building on Poydras Street, and, as Councilmember Head put it, “co-located” with the city’s Office of Recovery and Development Administration.

     Tonya Durden, NOAH’s interim director, said that the nonprofit agency has continued to operate based on funding from its 2007 contract with the city. She added that NOAH currently employs four people in its office.
