Grant requests should support nonprofit programs serving the Lafourche, Terrebonne and/or Grand Isle communities and residents with critical recovery and rebuilding services, and/or nonprofit programs that are filling increased needs for services due to the impacts of Hurricane Ida.

Housing and mental health needs are examples of current priorities for grant funding, although programs that fill other identified mid- to long-term recovery and rebuilding needs will also be considered.

Grants awarded are dependent on funds available in the Bayou Recovery Fund and continued needs identified in our community.  This is a competitive grants process. Decisions may take up to 60 days, depending on grants committee’s availability to meet.
