The Housing Authority of New Orleans (HANO) does not have an independent DBE/WBE certification process.  HANO grants full certification up to one (1) year upon receipt of written letter from one of the Louisiana Unified Certification Program (LAUCP) certifying agencies that a company is a LAUCP certified DBE/WBE. Annual verification is required by the vendor to show proof of continued certification through the Louisiana Certification Program.


All firms certified as DBE or WBE through the Louisiana Unified Certification Program.


Download and complete the HANO’s DBE Program Certification Application and submit it along with proof of DBE/WBE certification to the HANO’s Section 3/DBE/WBE Office.
