Task Force Meeting and Dedication Ceremony canceled

NEW ORLEANS – Due to the government shutdown and its impact on the five federal agencies in the Coastal Wetlands Planning Protection and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) program, all October CWPPRA events and meetings have been canceled.  This cancellation includes the October 17th Task Force meeting and the October 18th Dedication Ceremony. 

At this time, all events have been canceled indefinitely.  Once normal government operations resume, the CWPPRA Task Force will decide if and when to reschedule these events.

CWPPRA is comprised of five Federal Agencies and the Local Cost Share Sponsor, which is the State of Louisiana. The Federal Agencies of CWPPRA include:

  • the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) of the US Department of the Interior,
  • the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA),
  • the National Marine Fisheries Service of Department of Commerce (USDC),
  • the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), and
  • the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).

The Governor's Office of the State of Louisiana represents the State.
