GULF COAST NEWS - KATRINA RECOVERY in HANCOCK CO. as of 11-17-08
This is a report filed by Kathleen Johnson at the request from the Federal Coordinator for Gulf Coast Rebuilding and published in the very excellent, ongoing Katrina update news site, Gulf Coast News.
"Four years in the aftermath of Katrina there has been the realization that failure to provide affordable rental housing is critically impacting not only the recovery of the residents – but recovery of the region economically. Only 8.5%/60 units of the housing rental market in Hancock County is deemed affordable." - Kathleen Johnson
