ABBEVILLE, La. -

 Manufacturers in Vermilion Parish gathered at the South Louisiana Community College-Gulf Area Campus in Abbeville for a community forum hosted by the Manufacturing Extension Partnership of Louisiana (MEP of Louisiana). 

In September 2017, the MEP of Louisiana was awarded a $1 million two-year grant through the United States Department of Commerce. The Louisiana Hurricane Harvey Manufacturing Disaster Assessment Program is working with the state's MEP to help small and medium-sized manufacturers who are suffering from physical damage to their facilities, labor shortages, and other disruptions caused by the storm and flooding. The funds will be used for manufacturing clients in the following 12 disaster-declared parishes: Acadia, Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, Iberia, Jeff Davis, Natchitoches, Rapides, Sabine, Vermilion, and Vernon.

Thursday's forum allowed those manufactures to address their needs and receive the necessary resources for flood recovery.
