The New Orleans Redevelopment Authority has released a list of some 2,000 properties that are eligible for purchase through the Lot Next Door Program. City Council just recently voted to expand this program to any adjacent property owner (not just those next door). Between May 1 and August 1, you will be able to fill out an expression of interest form, which will be available on NORA website during that time frame. This is a requirement to be able to purchase a next door property. See below for a table, a map, and more information about the expanded Lot Next Door Program.
