NOVA gets $93k grant
Fifth District Congressman Ralph Abraham recently announced a some $93,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for education and workforce development through the NOVA Workforce Institute of NELA.
The USDA rural development grants will fund three projects that will benefit residents in 14 different parishes, 11 of which are in Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District.
“Thanks to tax reform and our efforts in Congress to remove barriers to job creation, our economy is booming and hiring is on the rise. These grants will help further stimulate workforce growth, job training and small business development in rural Louisiana, and I appreciate Sec. Sonny Perdue and the USDA for awarding these funds,” said Abraham, R-Alto.
