Gov. Haley Barbour says 128 affordable housing units officially open this week in D'Iberville, the latest in ongoing projects to restore dwelling destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
Barbour, in a news release, said the Estates at Juan de Cuevas Apartment Homes were partly funded through the $5.4 billion Congress approved for Mississippi's recovery from the 2005 storm.
Barbour said more than 1,000 new affordable housing units have opened since spring.
The project is a partnership between MDA and several housing organizations.
An opening ceremony is scheduled for Thursday.
