Coronavirus Emergency Funding

Date Created 4/1/2020

***Emergency Funding Notice Coronavirus***
 
LCLE has received the federal solicitation for Byrne JAG emergency funding. We are reviewing the guidance. In general the funds must be utilized to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus. To receive this funding LCLE must complete an application and go through the funding process just as we would with any other federal grant. The deadline for filing is May 29, 2020. I do not think we will be allowed to allocate or obligate any funds prior to that date. Our point of contact for this grant is Linda Gautier – Ph # 225-342-1703 or email: Linda.Gautier@lcle.la.gov .
 
We will be requesting data on the impact this pandemic is having on your operating budgets within the next two weeks. A link to the grant is listed below:
