HANO agrees to 'extensive' retrofit of apartments for people with disabilities; cost unknown



Under pressure from the federal government, the Housing Authority of New Orleans and private developers have agreed to an "extensive" retrofit of apartments at eight properties to make them more accessible for people with disabilities.


Even though seven of the properties were built after Hurricane Katrina with federal funds, the U.S. Department of Justice says they had “egregious” barriers to access, like steps to building entries and doors too narrow for wheelchairs.
