The Road Home Program was supposed to help revitalize the city of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and while the program has had some benefits, the repayment process has become a nightmare for some residents.

City Council member Latoya Cantrell has firsthand experience with the struggle, and now she's teaming up with other New Orleans City Council members to do something about it.

The New Orleans City Council will take up the Road Home repayment issue Wednesday afternoon at the Community Development Committee Meeting, at 2 p.m. in City Council Chambers. The meeting is open to the public.
