Louisiana Hospitality Foundation


The Louisiana Hospitality Foundation operates a Hospitality Worker Crisis Grant Program that provides emergency financial assistance to individuals working in Louisiana’s hospitality industry – one of the state’s largest employment sectors.

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

Applicants must be dealing with an emergency outside of their control. Examples of program-supported emergencies include, but are not limited to, unexpected illness (including COVID-19), injury, death of an immediate family member, or house fire.

Crisis grant funding may include:

  • Temporary mortgage or rent assistance
  • Payment of medical-related bills
  • Payment of basic utility bills
  • Funeral service assistance

Please note that funds are limited, therefore it is not guaranteed that each qualified request for funding will be approved.
