Hurricane Ida Recovery Fund
In the wake of Hurricane Ida, a devastating hurricane that made landfall in south Louisiana on August 29, local nonprofits Louisiana Policy Institute for Children (LPIC) and Agenda for Children are raising funds for child care providers impacted by Ida.
LPIC and Agenda for Children launched The Hurricane Ida Recovery Fund for Louisiana Child Care Providers (Hurricane Ida Recovery Fund) as a direct response to the widespread damage done by Hurricane Ida in several parts of the state. As recovery efforts continue, child care providers are critical to getting our economy back on track. Child care allows parents and caregivers to go to work or advance their education while providing crucial early learning experiences to children. The Fund will provide a much-needed infusion of funds to centers to help them get up and running quickly so that families can return and get started on our region’s recovery.
LPIC and Agenda for Children’s goal is to raise at least $200,000 through The Hurricane Ida Recovery Fund. All donations are tax deductible, and 100 percent of all donations will be distributed to child care providers in partnership with local and regional Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (CCR&Rs) and/or lead agencies in regions affected by Hurricane Ida, with priority given to providers located in the state’s hardest hit areas.
