Shreveport is getting a $1.2 million grant

Sen. Mary Landrieu announced Friday that the City of Shreveport is getting a $1.2 million grant to support the city's growing film industry. The grant money comes from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to build storm drainage infrastructure to support Millennium Film Studios. The funding is expected to create 50 jobs and, as Mayor Cedric Glover says, help the city get $5 million more in private investment. According to Sen. Mary Landrieu "With their Oscar win, Moonbot studios showed the world that the Shreveport film industry is a force to be reckoned with." Senator Landrieu also said "These funds will provide for important infrastructure improvements that will help this sector to continue to grow and thrive and the grant should also act as a catalyst for redevelopment in downtown and the Ledbetter Heights community."
