WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today announced a $9.8 million FEMA grant to replace the interior contents of several Ascension Parish schools that were damaged by flooding in 2016.
The grant will fund replacement furniture, textbooks, computers, kitchen equipment, band instruments and other school-related supplies.
This grant will restock Galvez Middle School, St. Amant Primary School, Galvez Primary School, Lake Elementary, St. Amant High School and maintenance and distribution facilities that support the schools.
“This grant is an investment in our teachers and students as they work to put our schools back together after catastrophic flooding in 2016,” said Sen. Kennedy. “Replacing important items like books and computers will help our students get off to a good start this new school year.”
