If your business has questions, please make use of the resources that Louisiana Economic Development has made available to you.” 

“This LED help desk is the latest of our efforts to serve Louisiana businesses and to help them sustain operations through the challenges presented by COVID-19,” Secretary Pierson said. “At our website - OpportunityLouisiana.com/covid19 - you’ll find many additional resources for COVID-19 business assistance. We encourage you to use them, and we thank our many partners across Louisiana for their dedicated support of our efforts.”
