Affordable Rentals


Louisiana Housing Search and the UNITY Housing Locator are two options for finding affordable rental properties. Search online for rentals or call toll free for operator-assistance with finding housing that fits your price range in your preferred area. Find these resources in our Renters Section <http://www.mailboto.com/cgi-bin/uls/uls.cgi?ako=DXOpXsOvjXWjYpXjjjXOsWX> .
