JDP to receive funding for Isaac recovery

Daily News Staff Report


Jeff Davis Parish was selected to receive funding for debris removal and emergency protective measures thanks to a Hurricane recovery grant extension from the federal government.

The U.S. Department of Labor (USDL) is providing additional $1.1 million in grant funding to continue Hurricane Isaac recovery efforts in Louisiana.

Last August during Tropical Storm Isaac, strong winds had crews working around the parish to clear downed trees and power lines, including this tree on Eleventh Street in Jennings that fell on a power line and caused outages in the area.
