Grants & Economic Development

The Lafourche Parish Government’s Department of Grants and Economic Development is committed to providing assistance to our citizens for business growth and opportunities. We offer information regarding the Louisiana Department of Economic Development’s incentive programs which can provide for participation by the local governing authority. This department is charged with processing of all occupational licenses for those businesses located in the unincorporated areas of the parish. Businesses located within the city/town limits of Thibodaux, Lockport and Golden Meadow should contact those municipalities directly for an occupational license. An additional service provided through this department is can shake permits, letters of no objection for special events such as fairs, festivals, raffles, dinners and parades along with any noise permits that might be associated with these special events.

The other important aspect of this department deals with grants, grant applications, processing and reporting and other aspects of grant administration. This department researches and submits grants on behalf of Lafourche Parish Government and partnership projects with parish government and other entities for projects such as public works (pump stations, major connector roads, drainage, etc.); recreational (walking trails, basketball courts, etc.); facilities, emergency generators for critical facilities, disaster recovery projects and much more. Grant funding received by Lafourche Parish Government allows the parish to budget its funds for additional projects and furtherance of taxpayer dollars.

The Grants and Economic Development Department is happy to answer questions on any of the above topics. Please feel free to contact us in the Thibodaux Government Complex facility.
