The Louisiana Hospitality Foundation provides financial assistance and guidance to members of the hospitality industry during times of crisis, which is a core part of our mission.

The Foundation raises funds through our signature fundraising events and other contributions, manages the application process for crisis assistance, and provides the administrative and financial services necessary to support the accounting and tracking of funds distributed.

Qualified applicants must be currently employed in the hospitality industry, and also working and living in Louisiana. 

Crisis grant funding may include:

  • Temporary mortgage or rent assistance

  • Payment of medical-related bills

  • Payment of utility bills

  • Funeral service assistance

Applications are reviewed within ten business days of receipt. Please note that funds are limited, therefore it is not guaranteed that each request for funding will be approved ev
