Creating Jobs for Louisiana Workers and a Competitive Edge for Energy Companies

Louisiana’s portfolio of performance-based business assistance programs save companies time and money while supporting the state’s efforts to attract new investment and expand and diversify the energy economy.

Certified Sites

Louisiana is fully committed to providing superior shovel-ready business sites, and no state offers a more rigorous prequalification process. The LED Certified Sites program qualifies industrial sites based on zoning restrictions, title work, environmental studies, soil analysis and surveys. These sites are 180-day development ready and have substantial due diligence studies performed to receive certification.

To assist companies needing to make complex site identification decisions, LED has secured or has access to GIS maps for every region of the state — enabling project managers to locate suitable sites quickly.
