New Orleans’ Mayor Mitch Landrieu revealed a plan called Resilient New Orleans on Aug. 21.

The plan includes 41 steps to promote resilience in the city. Some of the steps in this plan include launching an emergency account program and implementing a plan to help small businesses get the technology they need to enhance growth.

Mayor Landrieu stressed the importance of this plan to combat poverty and increase economic opportunities in the city.
