Every Louisianan, regardless of their race, age or ZIP code, deserves access to healthy food, an affordable place to live, and the ability to see a doctor when they get sick. For families that have trouble affording these basic necessities, public safety-net programs are there to provide a helping hand. 

To promote a better understanding of how safety-net programs affect different communities, Invest in Louisiana has created fact sheets for all 64 parishes and the 144 districts that make up the state House and Senate. The fact sheets include details about safety-net programs like Medicaid, tax credits that help low-income workers and educational scholarships that make college or technical training more affordable.

The fact sheets were built with data from state and national sources and intended for use by state policymakers, the news media, advocates and ordinary citizens. The intent is to create easy access to district-level information to help inform state government policy decisions.

Research for the fact sheets was led by Invest in Louisiana spring intern Lauryn Fry, with assistance from Research Director Alison Ocmand and Deputy Executive Director Stacey Roussel. Design and web layout for the fact sheets was led by Communications Director Jamie Carson.
