Respectful Communication(Required)
LHF prides itself in being an organization dedicated to the Louisiana hospitality industry. Our intention is to treat all applicants with care, concern, respect, and value. As an LHF grant applicant, we ask the same of you when communicating with our team members. LHF will not tolerate abusive language or threatening language. If communications with LHF become hostile, LHF reserves the right to revoke a grant at any time. LHF is expected to maintain the same respectful conduct standards as well. By checking this box, you agree to maintain respectful communication with LHF at all time. In the event you violate this policy, you will forgo your eligibility for an LHF grant now or in the future.
Document Submission(Required)
This application requires you to submit supporting documentation. LHF may require additional documents as needed at any time. Submitting false or fraudulent documentation or intentionally false or misleading information to LHF during the grant process WILL result in immediate termination of an LHF grant and will ensure the applicant's permanent ineligibility for future support. LHF reserves the right to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law in the event we are provided with knowingly fraudulent documentation. By checking the box above, you acknowledge that you are providing your business information and documents voluntarily and also acknowledge LHF's policies regarding false or fraudulent documentation and all intentionally false or misleading information.
Review Process Timeline(Required)
Because of the high volume of hurricane-related applications, it may take 3-4 weeks from the date of submission for a case manager to review your application. LHF reviews all applications in the order that they are received and does not give priority to one applicant over another. By checking the box above, you understand and accept that your application may not be reviewed for 3-4 weeks from the date of submission and that we cannot expedite individual applicants.
