LCG and Habitat Partner

Lafayette Consolidated Government and Habitat for Humanity Partner to Provide Grants for Community-Initiated Project

Lafayette Consolidated Government’s (LCG) Community Development and Planning Department and Lafayette Habitat for Humanity have partnered to continue offering community grants for small-scale projects along the Evangeline Corridor.

Residents, businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations interested in enhancing Lafayette’s oldest neighborhoods — Freetown-Port Rico, La Place, McComb-Veazey, Oasis, and Quiet Town are encouraged to apply. These neighborhoods, inevitably affected by the future I-49 Connector, were targeted for improvements as part of the Evangeline Corridor Initiative (ECI), a long-range plan to revitalize the communities near the Evangeline Thruway. Since then, neighborhood planning groups, or Coteries, have worked together to address neighborhood concerns and develop revitalization strategies.

Grants will be used for neighborhood resources, advocacy for improvements, and building community participation to bolster community pride. Grants range from $1,000 to $5,000. Grant applications are now being accepted through Friday, December 1.
