LaFHAC conducts investigations into fair housing violations. When necessary, LaFHAC attorneys help their clients through the process of filing a complaint with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, or filing a lawsuit in state or federal court. Help is free and confidential.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, LaFHAC offers free legal representation to people facing eviction. In New Orleans, the eviction defense project serves Orleans and Jefferson Parishes. In the Lafayette area, the project serves people in Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, St. Landry, St. Martin, and Vermillion Parishes. Anyone in need of an attorney can call LaFHAC at (504) 596-2100, or (877) 445-2100.
