Kiwanis of Lafayette thanks Carlee Alm-Labar, Chief Development Officer for Lafayette Consolidated Government, for speaking to us today.
Ms. Alm-Labar discussed the Federal TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) Grant provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation. LCG has received more than $300,000 in TIGER Grant funds to be used for urban planning and economic development surrounding the vital I-49 connector project.
These TIGER funds, along with nearly $600,000 in additional resources, will give aid to the districts surrounding the proposed I-49 connector.
Thanks again, Carlee, for your educational discussion.
