An LDRF grant was awarded to develop a pilot surveying and map­ping program in Gentilly. Without this generous grant, the current survey­ing and mapping project that is continuing to spread throughout Gentilly would not have been possible. This grant has allowed the Beacon of Hope to partner with The Univer­sity of New Orleans to create the Beacon of Hope/University of New Orleans Community Recovery Project (BUCRP) to create a more systematic approach to creating an overall surveying and mapping process that could be applied more broadly across the City of New Orleans.
