Delta Regional Authority Invest $10 million in Louisiana Delta
The Delta Regional Authority and its partners are investing more than $10 million in federal, state, and local resources to support small business owners and entrepreneurs, workers and their families by improving economic development, workforce training, and job creation in Louisiana’s Delta region, Delta Regional Authority Federal Co-Chairman Chris Masingill announced today.
The thirteen new investments, including workforce training and infrastructure improvements that support economic development, leverage $1.6 million in DRA resources into $10 million in total public and private investment for Louisiana’s Delta communities, their residents, and their economies.
“Louisiana can’t have a thriving economy with an aging infrastructure and an ill-equipped workforce. These important programs will give areas along the Mississippi Delta a fighting chance at attracting new jobs, opening new businesses, and growing our rural economy in Louisiana,” U.S. Congressman Ralph Abraham (LA-5) said.
