Letlow Announces $2 Million Federal Investment in West Monroe

Congresswoman Julia Letlow (LA-05) today announced that the U.S. Department of Commerce awarded a $2 million Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant to the City of West Monroe for upgrades to the city's sewer infrastructure.

"This substantial EDA grant will not only bring needed infrastructure improvements to West Monroe, but it will also help create jobs in the community and encourage business growth," Letlow said.

The project is estimated to create more than 80 jobs and impact more than 230 existing jobs in Ouachita Parish. More information on the EDA grant can be found at U.S. Economic Development Administration.
