The program provides funding up to $30,000 for eligible expenses to restore fisheries and related communities affected by the Louisiana 2019 flood disaster. The program is open to commercial fishermen, vessel owners, seafood docks, processors and charter captains for reimbursement and purchase of updated and modern equipment to remediate impacts resulting from the influx of freshwater flooding. Equipment acquired under the program will assist the commercial fishing industry to adapt to environmental changes and provide long-term benefits by reinvesting funds back into the industry.
