Created by actor Brad Pitt to help in the reconstruction of New Orlean’s 9th Ward after hurricane Katrina, The Make It Right Foundation is now being sued by its contractor in Montana for the final installment of a $430,000 contract to build 20 homes for members of the Sioux and Assinibone tribes in Fort Peck, Montana.
It seems the dwellings were eventually completed, but the firm contracted to design and build the modular homes was shorted as the foundation itself fell into disarray.
They’re suppose to be “affordable” “for people in need”. The ones in Montana averaged out at $283,000 a piece, in a region where a house normally goes for $50,000. Occupants can only afford to rent or purchase them with subsidized loans.
Would you pay $283,000 for one of these beauties? Here
