Faubourg Lafitte

2200 Lafitte St, New Orleans, Louisiana 70119

Located in historic Treme and consisting of a mix of subsidized public housing, affordable tax credit, and market rate units, Faubourg Lafitte is more than just a place to live.  The location embraces the rich history of celebrated chefs, artists, musicians, and other New Orleans change-makers currently enjoying a revival.  The Faubourg Lafitte is located at the center of that revival, right along with parks, hospitals, community centers, and new schools.  Not only does this new development provide an opportunity for new working families to enter this community, but also gives former Lafitte residents a chance to return to their neighborhood.  This location is serviced by multiple bus and streetcar lines.  Ideal for working families, Faubourg Lafitte enjoys close access to the city’s Central Business District and BioDistrict.

Public Housing

Since this property is owned and managed by a Public Housing Authority, all of the rents at this property are based on tenant incomes. Tenants will make a monthly contribution toward rent equal to 30% of their adjusted income. A housing authority may establish a minimum rent of up to $50.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
