Louisiana Approves $13.9M for Work on Five New Libraries
Fri October 02, 2009 - Southeast Edition Construction Equipment Guide
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Louisiana has approved $13.9 million for the construction of five new libraries in New Orleans. The money will allow the city to access federal Community Development Block Grant funds needed to implement the project.
The funding comes from the Long Term Community Recovery Program, a $700 million pool of federal disaster-recovery money set aside by the Louisiana Recovery Authority and Office of Community Development to help local governments rebuild and implement long-term recovery plans.
FEMA will demolish the structures, which have been shuttered since Hurricane Katrina, but only pay for the replacement costs of the damaged facilities. The disaster recovery money will be combined with the FEMA funds to build larger and stronger libraries at the same locations.
