Funding Header


The following is a list of various funding opportunities for Acadia Parish to consider when raising funds to implement and operate the projects included in this action plan. Fortunately for the Capital Campaign Committee, the Acadiana Planning Commission (APC) has been engaged in this planning process from the beginning and will prove to be instrumental when applying for public sector funding and helping execute these projects.
