Andreanecia Morris

NEW ORLEANS – The Louisiana Housing Corporation (LHC) recently announced that Andreanecia Morris, executive director of HousingNOLA, has been appointed by Governor John Bel Edwards to its Board of Directors.

         A native of Edgard, Louisiana, and a graduate of Loyola University, Morris has spent the majority of her professional career working to support the creation of affordable housing opportunities for all Louisianians in both the public and private sector.

         Established in 2011, the LHC administers federal and state funds through programs designed to advance the development of energy efficient and affordable housing for low and moderate-income families and drive housing policy for the state of Louisiana.

         The LHC board is composed of the State Treasurer, two members appointed by the President of the Senate, two members appointed by the Speaker of the House, and six members appointed by the Governor representing various housing sectors and the public. As one of 11 members of the LHC Board of Directors, Morris will continue her work to ensure that every Louisiana resident is granted opportunities to obtain safe, affordable and healthy housing, reps said.

         "As our state's housing agency, the Louisiana Housing Corporation is committed to preserving and sustaining affordable housing for all Louisianians," said Morris. "I am deeply honored by my appointment and excited to continue to work together to address our current housing crisis and create real equity, opportunity and success for all those who call this state home."

         Throughout Morris' career, she served as the director of communications for the Housing Authority of New Orleans (HANO), marketing manager of HANO, director of telecommunications of HANO, vice-president for homeownership and community development for Providence Community Housing and as president and chairwoman of the Board of Governors of the Greater New Orleans Housing Alliance.

         She was named to the 2014 class of New Orleans CityBusiness' "Women of the Year" and in 2016, UNITY of Greater New Orleans named her Outstanding Advocate for Affordable Housing. BIZ New Orleans Magazine named her one of the Top 10 Influencers in Real Estate and Urban Conservancy and Stay Local named her to its 2016 Urban Heroes Class.

         As a result of her many years of experience and expertise within the housing sector, Morris has been asked to speak on housing issues both in the United States and abroad. Most recently, she will travel to our nation's capital with a delegation from Houston to meet with leaders on housing issues associated with Hurricane Harvey relating to FEMA, CDBG funding and mitigation.
