Event Details

Our local host, Total Community Action, will lead a tour of the nearby former Charity Hospital site, which has been closed since Hurricane Katrina and is slated to be redeveloped, with community input.

Total Community Action and its partner, the Greater New Orleans Community Foundation, will describe how the community has been involved in determining the use of the site, which is located in an Opportunity Zone, a designation that seeks to attract private capital to projects in low-income areas.  

The renovation will be designed to incorporate a wide variety of community benefits into the completed project. Among the areas to be addressed are the need for health care institutions, affordable housing, improved transportation, a homeless shelter with support services, the incubation of local small businesses, workforce development, increased retail, increased availability of child care, and a new main library for the city.   In addition to the benefits of the new Opportunity Zone designation, the project also plans to use New Market Tax Credits as part of its financing package.   See https://charityinnovationdistrict.com/ for more details.

The tour will be on Tuesday, January 15th, from 2 to 5 p.m. It will include a bus tour of the site, followed by discussion and refreshments at the offices of the Greater New Orleans Community Foundation. A copy of the strategy and action plan will be available for attendees.  

Space is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Those registered should meet in the lobby of the Westin at 1:45 p.m.
