The East Feliciana Police Jury has requested a $3 million Community Development Block Grant to assist the parish's recovery from hurricanes Gustav and Ike.

The grant request the jury approved Tuesday includes projects in the towns of Slaughter and Jackson and the villages of Wilson and Norwood.

Most of the $2.4 million would be spent on parish-wide road and drainage repairs.

The remainder would be used to buy generators to help supply emergency power during and after future storms.

Gustav and Ike brought heavy rain and floodwater that penetrated underlying roadbeds and caused road-base failures throughout the parish.
