There are so many abandoned properties and vacant lots in our district that need to be placed back into the housing market. We need to work with developers, community development corporation organizations and spiritual organizations to build affordable housing to bring individuals back to our district. We must use community development funds to assist individuals in the purchae of homes within our district.
It is important for us to partner with developers to get them to invest in our district, parish and state to build affordable homes with tax credits. This will provide citizens with the opportunity to move out of apartments and into homes with yards to raise their children.
