COVID Resources for Businesses

LEDA resources and aides to guide your business.


It’s vitally important to support local businesses when times are tough.

In Lafayette, not only are we facing the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are facing a new oil crunch just as the region is emerging from the 2014 downturn. We all have a role to play in supporting our local businesses and their employees—who are our friends, families and neighbors. We encourage you to support your favorite local retailer, service provider, or other business over the coming weeks and months. Click here for COVID Resources for Employees/Workers.
