Gov. John Bel Edwards is announcing $163 million in federal funding for 15 state projects and programs designed to reduce flood risk for communities throughout the state.
The state selected these projects because they align with the long-term resilience objectives of the Louisiana Watershed Initiative and the state’s $1.2 billion CDBG-MIT Action Plan, including natural flood management, flood control and critical infrastructure projects. The funding for these projects is part of the $1.2 billion in federal mitigation funds allocated to Louisiana.
