A Message from Mayor LaToya Cantrell
New Orleans is experiencing an
unprecedented level of growth and investment despite facing many
challenges in our recent history. The Industrial Development
Board (IDB) is an important part of the economic development and
continued growth of the City of New Orleans.
The New Orleans City Council created the
IDB in 1972, and it has helped provide low-cost bond financing
and access to other building incentives throughout its tenure,
investing in projects that provide jobs and housing for our
residents. The IDB is a self-sustained public corporation that
works closely with the City of New Orleans to build a stronger,
more inclusive economy to benefit all of our citizens.
The City of
New Orleans and IDB recognize that our economy will only reach
its full potential when all New Orleanians have the opportunity
to participate. The way is in our front and we are committed to
moving forward together!
City of New Orleans
