Business Incentives

The Natchitoches Parish Port has access to several incentive programs, in addition to those administered by the Louisiana Department of Economic Development, that can be used to aid in the development of projects. The Port is located in an Enterprise Zone as well as a New Markets Tax Credit zone. The Port is eligible for grant funds through the State of Louisiana’s Port Construction and Development Port Priority Program, from the Red River Waterway Commission, the local sponsor of the Red River Waterway Project, as well as other state and federal programs. In addition, the Port has the capability to sell bonds and assist in funding projects.
