Coastal Technical Assistance Center (CTAC) is an idea generated and funded through Louisiana Economic Development (LED) and the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA).LED and CPRA have identified a need to assist Louisiana-based, small businesses in obtaining contracts with entities involved in the restoration and recovery efforts of coastal Louisiana. Facilitating such efforts will fall to longtime partner of LED and Regional Economic Development Organization, the South Louisiana Economic Council (SLEC).
Laci Melancon brings an impressive repertoire of knowledge to CTAC with experience at the administrative level, work with local colleges and universities, as well as executive level direction of a local non-profit. As a Louisiana resident, Laci’s commitment to the coast runs deep as she spent much of her childhood “on the water” trawling for shrimp and fishing. Now, she’s committed to helping preserve and restore our great state and the culture it provides for generations to come.
