South Central Planning and Development Commission, Inc. (SCPDC) will begin constructing “starter” homes to replenish the damaged and short supply of housing in our region. To accomplish this task, SCPDC is appealing to the public for property donations to construct these homes. SCPDC has created the South Central Regional Affordable Community Housing Authority, (SCRACH) a New 501(c)3 Affordable Housing support agency to accept the donations and handle the resale to members of the public.

South Central Planning and Development Commission has always been a leading advocate for community development and social impact, and is reaching out to the local communities, including parishes and individuals, to actively participate in its innovative Affordable Housing Program. Designed to combat the pressing housing crisis in our area, SCRACH welcomes property donations in Assumption, Lafourche, St Charles, St James, St John the Baptist, St Mary, and Terrebonne Parish to expand its reach and impact.
As the need for cost effective housing continues to escalate, SCPDC & SCRACH recognizes the invaluable role that property donations can play in making these homes affordable. By contributing lots, individuals can directly contribute to the revitalization of neighborhoods and strengthen our community.

1. Tax Advantages: Donors may be eligible for tax benefits associated with charitable contributions. [South
Central Planning and Development Commission (SCPDC)] encourages interested parties to consult with their

a critical need. By contributing property, individuals and parishes can play a pivotal role in shaping the future of
