Project Review/Clearinghouse Service

Select federal, state, and local grants require a review of the project by a qualified agency before it may be submitted to the granting agency. CDC's Division of Project Review serves as a reviewing agency in Louisiana, evaluating applications for community and economic development projects to assure compliance with federal, state, and local regulations, and to prevent duplication and ensure coordination between interested parties. The Division also informs affected local officials of projects proposed for their area, thus giving them an opportunity to comment about a specific application if they so desire.
