Make It Right and NSP2

Make It Right is part of the New Orleans Neighborhood Stabilization Phase 2 (NSP2) Consortium (NOC Consortium).  The New Orleans Consortium is a partnership between 11 experienced non-profits, the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority (NORA) and a green building consultant, Green Coast Enterprises. The NOC Consortium was awarded $29.7M to conduct comprehensive redevelopment through the rehabilitation and new construction of new homes throughout a variety of neighborhoods across the city. Make It Right will receive funds to build safe, sustainable and affordable homes.

Make It Right will be performing these activities in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward, where we have been building since 2008. New construction will begin in October 2010 with the first units complete in December 2010 / January 2011.

Our homes will meet the Enterprise Green Communities criteria as well as the Builder’s Challenge criteria. All Make It Right homes are equipped with solar power and energy-efficient appliances, saving families hundreds of dollars a year in energy bills.

Please review Make It Right’s website for photos of our completed homes and testimonials from homeowners.

If you are interested in purchasing one of our properties, please call 504.620.3200 and ask for the Homeowner Services Department. All purchasers of our NSP2 properties are required to earn 120% of the Area Median Income or less and attend homebuyer training.

If you are interested in contracts related to NSP2 activities our organization is undertaking, please call 504.620.3200 and ask for the Construction Department. In addition, notice of such opportunities will be posted in the Times-Picayune and on

In the meantime, should you have further questions, please contact Chris Moore at 504.620.3200.
