Economic Council looks at disaster-impacted communities

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The International Economic Development Council is in southwest Louisiana Thursday, presenting their findings on the area as a disaster-impacted community.

The Council will pair with the SWLA Economic Development Alliance thanks to an EDA grant. The grant is in place to help with recovery and resiliency of communities impacted by disasters.

The IEDC conducted a three day site visit to SWLA as part of their information gathering procedure. How they go about implementing a plan will be based on the information gathered, including practices and interviews.
