The application process for Logger relief has reopened and the Louisiana Department of the Treasury will receive applications through Oct. 31.
The Logger Relief Program was established to help loggers who lost revenue in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic. Many loggers have applied and received assistance, but many others might have been turned down. Now the state has $5 million set aside to help those loggers recover.
The state Department of the Treasury is encouraging loggers who have not previously applied or were denied assistance to re-apply. The review could mean help loggers with grants of up to $25,000. Loggers who have already received the assistance are ineligible.
