About Main Street Recovery

On June 1, 2020, the Louisiana Legislature passed $275M in relief funds for Louisiana small businesses.  Authored by Senators Bodi White and Heather Cloud, the Main Street Grant Recovery Program provided grants of up to $15,000 for more than 20,000 businesses across the state. The Program was administered by the Louisiana Department of Treasury (John M. Schroder, State Treasurer).
