Lafayette Business Recovery Program


Program Overview  |  Information Sheet (.pdf)

In response to economic hardships experienced by small businesses resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) and Lafayette Economic Development Authority (LEDA) have launched the Lafayette Business Recovery Program to stabilize local businesses and retain/create jobs.

Businesses may apply for a forgivable loan or grant of up to $10,000 to assist with up to three months of unpaid costs associated with qualifying business expenses incurred not prior to March 27, 2020—including but not limited to rent, payroll, insurance, benefits, and utilities.

Begin your application here.


For your business to be considered in the current round of funding for the Lafayette Business Recovery Program, all application materials must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, September 30. Required forms were sent via email to the address provided on the initial form.
The Business Recovery Selection Committee will review all complete applications submitted before the deadline and make award decisions. Applicants will be contacted with further instructions.  
Applications submitted after the initial deadline will be considered for future rounds if funding is available.

Do you have questions about the application or the program?

Assistance with the application process is available by calling LEDA at 337-593-1400.
