Background of the Corporation

The Louisiana Housing Corporation was created in 2011 when the Louisiana Legislature merged the Louisiana Housing Finance Authority with housing programs from other state agencies, including Louisiana’s Office of Community Development. This move centralized Louisiana’s housing programs into one agency to streamline how the state addresses its housing needs, avoid duplication of effort and improve service to the general public.

The LHC administers federal and state funds through programs designed to advance the development of energy efficient and affordable housing for low and moderate income families, drives housing policy for Louisiana and oversees the state’s Disaster Housing Task Force.
