“One of Louisiana’s greatest assets is our rich culture and heritage. There really is nothing like it anywhere in the country,” said Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser. “Our culture is a strong economic engine for the state, and preserving that culture and history needs to be a priority. While there are many reasons people visit all over Louisiana, those I speak with tell me consistently that a big draw for them is a culture that will Feed Your Soul.”
According to Nungesser’s office, grants range between $3,000 and $75,000 and recipients will be notified by Monday, August 15.
