Over the coming years, massive sums of money will be invested in rebuilding New Orleans. Much of this investment must go to physical infrastructure, but without parallel investments in affordable housing, quality public schools, effective job training, health care, and other social infrastructure, New Orleans will not attract back as many families nor can it become a city where all residents enjoy opportunities for security and success. This essay synthesizes a collection of proposals to guide the city's social reconstruction, all of which hold promise for connecting New Orleans' low-income residents to mainstream social and economic opportunities.
