is a campaign to secure the commitment of 80,000 registered voters to support GNOHA advocacy efforts and the implementation of the 10-Year HousingNOLA Plan.


Together we will ensure that our leaders will prioritize safe, affordable, healthy housing for all in New Orleans.  


Blog #PutHousingFirst is more than just a hashtag! Check out our blog for detailed plans, updates and calls-to-action.


Every election season, #PutHousingFirst participates in voter engagement efforts to see where the candidates stand on affordable housing issues. Candidates are presented a questionnaire asking for their commitment to ensure affordable housing for all. Candidates are also invited to participate in an interview with our Platform Committee, where we work to foster solutions and strategies that align with the #PutHousingFirst campaign.

In 2017, the Greater New Orleans Housing Alliance (GNOHA) developed the first #PutHousingFirst Platform outlining the needs for New Orleans residents along with public policy recommendations to meet those needs. #PutHousingFirst released their first Candidate Scorecards that same year for both the municipal election and general election in New Orleans.

#PutHousingFirst continued to provide voters with Candidate Scorecards in the 2018 election for Congressional District 93 Representative. For the November 2018 election, #PutHousingFirst began including ballot initiative analyses into their scorecards to breakdown how constitutional amendments or propositions impact affordable housing development. These efforts carried on into the 2019 election and accompanying Parishwide Propositions.
