STATEMENT BY HUD SECRETARY ALPHONSO JACKSON ON LOUISIANA'S 10,000 ROAD HOME CLOSINGS
I welcome the news that Louisiana has reached the milestone of 10,000 closings in its Road Home program. This is good news for those families who are now on the way to rebuilding their lives.The State's aggressive efforts to reform the Road Home into a direct compensation program over the last month means more Louisianans will have access to these critical funds more quickly. The Governor is to be commended for taking this much needed action. HUD stands ready to help the State of Louisiana in any way we can to get the job done.
