WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) announced the National Park Service will grant the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism $353,740.00 from the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). The funding will be used to construct a splash pad and fishing pier at Little Caillou Park in Terrebonne Parish.
“Fishing and being outdoors are a part of life in southern Louisiana,” said Dr. Cassidy. “This funding from energy production in the Gulf of Mexico will provide increased opportunity for families in Terrebonne to enjoy the great outdoors.”
LWCF derives its revenue from offshore oil and gas development and provides those funds as grants to federal, state and local governments for recreation and conservation projects.
