From Livingston Parish President Layton Ricks:
LIVINGSTON---Livingston Parish President Layton Ricks is pleased to announce that the IRS has given Livingston Rises the go ahead to seek additional funding for flood victims in Livingston Parish.
We can now immediately begin to distribute the funds currently available.
Applicants receiving funds will receive a telephone call and will be told when and where the check will be made available. A picture id will be required when picking up funds.
Please do not call or email the Parish as this will only delay the distribution process, which we expect to take a few days.
Due to the large number of applications received, we were not able to fund all applicants in this first distribution cycle. Although no additional applications are being accepted at this time, unfunded applications will be kept on file and, as additional funds are received, will be considered again for any future distribution.
I would like to personally thank and recognize Waste Management for their generous contribution that made this assistance possible as well as Sheriff Jason Ard, Livingston Parish School System Superintendent Rick Wentzel and Rene Faucheux of Waste Management, Manager Municipal and Community Affairs.
