Gov. John Bel Edwards announced the launch of PRO Louisiana, a workforce development program of the Louisiana Watershed Initiative for professional resilience occupations, in partnership with the Louisiana Community and Technical College System and Louisiana Economic Development.
PRO Louisiana provides federal funding for disaster resilience training courses and certification. The goal is to develop a skilled workforce to support statewide resilience efforts, including LWI flood risk reduction projects, and build up Louisiana’s defense against future disasters.
More than $450 million in federal funds has been awarded to flood mitigation projects statewide that will break ground over the next few years, which means trained resilience professionals will be needed to support these efforts. Check back soon for the schedule of available classes.
