The purpose of the Northeast Louisiana Business and Community Development Center (NLBCDC) is to advance entrepreneurship and to support economic and community development in the northeast Louisiana Delta region. The NLBCDC offers business owners resources and services designed to support and sustain a successful business. The small business incubator provides facilities and administrative assistance to fledgling companies thus allowing them to focus on the development or expansion of their business. Training and opportunities that directly impact the quality of life and stimulate economic growth will be offered in communities comprising the targeted region.


We are excited to announce that the incubator has received a $25,000 grant from the Louisiana Business Incubation Association and Louisiana Economic Development This marks the fourth significant investment in the center by LBIA/LED. The current award will be used to renovate additional space on the first floor of the incubator and to install technology in the conference/training rooms. This technology will allow tenants to conduct seminars, workshops and host meetings.

We appreciate the continued support from the Louisiana Business Incubation Association and Louisiana Economic Development. This recent award comes at a significant juncture in the growth of our incubator and will allow us to continue development of a great economic development tool for our region.
