Louisiana Economic Development (LED) is currently monitoring the impact of the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
LED is focusing on business continuity aimed at safeguarding economic, as well as physical, health. This information is in addition to that found on the Governor’s website; it will focus on useful resources and information for businesses and individuals.
The program was designed to help those who need it most. Grants will first be given to businesses that did not receive a Paycheck Protection Program loan, insurance payment, or an Economic Injury Disaster loan or advance. Priority will be given to those businesses for the first 21 days of the program, but businesses that did receive federal assistance can still apply. Additionally, $40 million will be set aside within the first 60 days of the application process for businesses owned by women, minorities and veterans.
Identifying Critical Infrastructure during COVID-19
Functioning critical infrastructure is imperative during the response to the COVID-19 emergency for both public health and safety as well as community well-being. Certain critical infrastructure industries have a special responsibility in these times to continue operations.
This guidance and accompanying list are intended to support State, Local, and industry partners in identifying the critical infrastructure sectors and the essential workers needed to maintain the services and functions Americans depend on daily and need to be able to operate resiliently during the COVID-19 pandemic response.

On March 16, President Trump announced public health guidelines to slow the spread of Coronavirus in America. He asked every family to unite against this invisible enemy, making changes to our daily routines as part of a national effort to save lives. As he said on Monday, it’s likely that a peak in Coronavirus fatalities will arrive in about two weeks. If we continue to follow public health guidelines vigorously, we could save more than 1 million American lives in the weeks and months ahead. A million American lives are worth fighting for. That’s why this week, President Trump extended his Coronavirus Guidelines for America through the next 30 days. Please click here for more information: 30 Days to Slow the Spread
