The Housing Authority of New Orleans is proposing a new affordable housing project on land it owns in the Bywater. The development would have 150 units, 90 of which would be rented at affordable prices. A Texas-based real estate company called ITEX would build and manage the new property in return for subsidies and tax credits.

Lens reporter, Michael Isaac Stein, talked with Cashauna Hill, the Executive Director of the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center - a housing advocacy group that supports the project.

This interview was done in collaboration with The Lens.
