Livingston Parish Sheriffs Office to receive over $2 million dollars for 2016 floods


Following the 2016 Flood, President Donald Trump signed Graves’ provision into law in October of 2018 (photo above), which enabled more funds to be allocated through FEMA grants.

LIVINGSTON PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) – The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office will be reimbursed  $2,242,377 in response to the 2016 Floods.

“The 2016 Flood was an absolute strain across our communities and every corner of our community suffered. Families, schools, law enforcement, small business owners – you name it. It’s taken years to get these long-overdue funds to help the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office but they are entirely deserving of every penny,”  U.S. Congressman, Garret Graves said.

This grant will reimburse the Livingston Parish Sherriff’s Office for direct temporary housing and permanent housing construction, according to Graves.
