Three of the top five posted occupations for the region saw over-the-year growth in postings, with truck driving seeing a significant 119% increase, most likely due to increased shipping volume with online retail sales surging in the lockdown periods. Although two retail-based occupations saw a significant drop-off in postings, they still have thousands of available openings.

The COVID Defense app was launched by the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) to allow users who opt in to receive notifications if there is a risk they were exposed to someone who has tested positive for the virus. BRAC encourages employers to share this information with their employees.

COVID Defense can be downloaded in the iPhone App Store or Android Google Play Store. Use of the technology is completely voluntary, private, and secure. COVID Defense does not collect the location of a phone or individual to detect exposure, and it does not share a user's identity. App users must opt in to use the tool and may opt out at any time. No personal information is required to use the app.

  • To find a COVID testing site near you, dial 211 or text your zip code to 898-211 and a specialist will assist you.

Recordings of webinars related to business issues around COVID-19 can be found on BRAC's Vimeo page.

Business Aid Programs
  • The SBA offers several programs for business owners, including the Paycheck Protection Program, COVID-19 EIDL loans, and EIDL Advance programs. Learn more at sba.gov
Other Guidance

Louisiana Economic Development has launched a hotline for Louisiana businesses. Companies can call (833) 457-0531 between 8:00 a.m.- 8:00 p.m. or email LEDbiz@la.gov with their questions related to the impact of COVID-19.

The Louisiana Workforce Commission has unemployment insurance information for both employers and employees available at laworks.net.

 

The State Procurement website maintains a regularly updated list of open and closed bids. To register as a vendor with the State of Louisiana, click here. During the registration process, you will be able to select all of the commodities that your company is able to provide. The State of Louisiana will be issuing Request for Quotes (RFQs) through the Louisiana Procurement and Contract Network (LaPAC), the on-line electronic bid posting and notification system, for the supplies/services currently needed. LaPAC will automatically send an e-mail notification to all of the vendors registered for that specific commodity. You will then be able to submit your pricing and availability electronically.

The Louisiana Procurement and Technical Assistance Center is available to assist businesses with government contracting. Businesses interested in competing for disaster response and recovery contracts should review this flier for steps to ensure that they are procurement ready. Businesses with existing government contracts seeking an equitable adjustment due to COVID-19 should take the following steps:

  • Communicate with your contracting officer (CO), by email for record-keeping, as soon as you think your situation has changed from when your initial contract was negotiated or bid on.
  • Partner with your CO to get authority to deliver late and try to negotiate a revised delivery schedule, extension, and/or revised costs. This may occur with subcontractor disruptions necessitating different subs or sourcing.
  • If you don’t get a response from your CO, email the agency small business representatives for help in getting your CO’s attention.
  • Keep good records including dates of conversations and names of people you spoke or emailed with.
