Funding Guidelines

Confirm Eligibility and Review Deadlines

Before taking the time to develop a project proposal and making application, confirm your eligibility and review submission deadlines below.


The organization must demonstrate that it manages its business wisely and that an appropriate percentage of the grant will go to programs rather than administration.

Organizations/Programs eligible for funding should have values consistent with those of the LCEF:


Must provide construction education, safety, craft or supervisory program(s) in Louisiana that produce(s) an industry certification that meets or exceeds those certifications issued by the NCCER.

Must support Louisiana’s construction workforce by guiding students to further construction education, training or career opportunities.

Must work to increase the educational quality of the program, in addition to the quantity of students impacted.



Grant requests should be received by the second Friday of each month. If the deadline falls on a holiday, requests are due on the weekday immediately preceding that holiday. The notification will be released up to 90 days after the receipt of a request.
