Round 2

Round 2 provides strategic investments in flood risk reduction projects that align with federal grant requirements, as well as project design support for local and regional partners.


This is a $100 million project funding opportunity for local and regional public entities. To be eligible for funding, projects must benefit low- to moderate-income and disadvantaged communities in parishes that were most impacted and distressed by the 2016 floods. The state will provide feedback to all applicants, including those ineligible for funding, as well as technical assistance for eligible applicants.
