There is free money available for people in the logging business in Louisiana but you need to apply now before the $9 million dollars left earmarked for the Louisiana Loggers Relief program is all gone.
The State Treasury Department said loggers can receive up to a $25,000 grant. It’s through the Main Street Recovery Program that was passed by the state legislature to help industries during the pandemic. Loggers were left out of the first round of funding so legislators included them this time, and now the State Treasurer is touring the state to let loggers know there is money waiting for them.The program ends in December.
“Loggers are working from morning to dark and are not real computer savvy so we’re trying to help them through that process. We are allowing their tax preparers or accountants or bookkeepers to prepare the applications for them.”, said John Schroder, State Treasurer of Louisiana.
