Waveland Community Development Allocates $3.5 million New Market Tax Credits to the Make It Right Foundation (December 2009)



Waveland Community Development is pleased to announce that it has allocated $3.5 million New Market Tax Credits to the Make It Right Foundation ("MIR"). Founded in 2007 by actor Brad Pitt, MIR is in the process of building 150 green, affordable, high-quality design homes in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. To date 21 local, national, and international architects have donated architectural designs for single family and duplex homes to MIR. Given that all homes built by MIR will be certified LEED platinum for their energy efficiency and sustainability, the MIR community will be the "largest, greenest neighborhood of single family homes in America", according to the Green Building Council.
