The Louisiana Main Street Recovery Program is a $275 million grant program designed to reimburse eligible small businesses for expenses related to COVID-19. $40 million has been set aside in the first 60 days to ensure minority, women, and veteran owned businesses receive the relief they need.
Some expenses the grant will reimburse include cleaning fees, costs to create social distancing, PPE, contactless equipment, some technology fees, signage, etc. Business interruption costs may also be reimbursable, including inventory replacement (spoiled food), increased labor costs (hiring delivery drivers), rent, payroll, and others.
