Revitalization Efforts and Natural Resources Power Rural Communities
Forging a future filled with economic investment and progress
Rural Louisiana enjoys a proud history as the proving ground for many of our state’s best-known and most profitable industries.
From agriculture and wood products to rapidly expanding entrants in the renewable energy sector, rural Louisiana’s nearly 750,000 residents contribute their talents and tenacity to help emerging and established enterprises expand their operations, while also driving the creation of new jobs, revenue and economic growth that benefits every region of our state.
Louisiana takes a proactive approach, supporting and expanding rural Louisiana’s role as a hub of economic and community development that is broad-based, sustainable and accessible to all people.
