Toolkit for Navigating the Criminal Background Screening Policy of the Housing Authority of New Orleans

The HANO Criminal Background policy says that nobody with a criminal record is automatically barred from receiving housing assistance unless they are on the lifetime sex offender registry or have been convicted of producing methamphetamines. You should not be denied housing on the basis of your criminal record without being given a chance to submit further evidence about yourself.
