COVID-19 Listening Session for Housing Providers
LHC hosted a series of virtual listening sessions April 6-10, 2020, to better understand the impacts of COVID-19 on the affordable housing industry across Louisiana. The eight virtual listening sessions were attended by 398 participants. These listening sessions were designed to be a conversation with our partners that provided an opportunity to discuss strategies and best practices to approach this disruption.
As boots on the ground, our partners are seeing the first-hand impact of how this pandemic is impacting local communities, economies, and the financial security of the people we serve.

Through guidelines established by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, temporary mortgage and rent relief are available for individuals who are experiencing economic hardship due to COVID-19, such as job loss, income reduction or illness.
We have created one-page factsheets to help homeowners and renters prevent foreclosure and eviction as well as better understand their rights under the CARES Act. For additional information, visit lhc.la.gov/covid19.
