BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The state's Shelter at Home program is in need of contractors to complete work for flood victims. A job fair will be held to recruit those who are interested. 

The job fair will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 7, from 6-9 p.m. at Bon Carre’ Business Center, 7389 Florida Blvd, in the Main Lobby. The five General Contractors for the Shelter at Home Program will be taking information from tradesmen and sub-contractors who wish to provide their services to this flood recovery program.

This will be one of several opportunities for local contractors, MBE/DBE businesses and trades to provide their information and speak to the General Contractors procured by GOHSEP for the Shelter at Home Program.
