Louisiana's Alternative Housing Pilot Program (AHPP) creates three separate group sites in Louisiana and an infill project within New Orleans. Two different housing models will be produced - the Louisiana (or "Katrina") Cottage (a single family home), and the Dovetail Cottage (a one story multifamily unit).
This project illustrates how disaster housing can spur long-term recovery. The multiple layout options allow recovery officials to provide disaster housing to a diverse population. The houses have a steel frame construction for endurance and high winds. The project also shows commitment to providing social services to residents and facilitating affordable home-ownership.
