LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - South Louisiana Community College received a $700,000 infusion in its effort to build a new health and sciences building at the school’s Devalcourt Street campus in Lafayette.

The Lafayette Public Trust Financing Authority voted unanimously Tuesday to give SLCC $700,000.

The money will be used as part of a required $2.1 million local match to secure $15 million in state funding for a $17.1 million project to expand facilities that have been cramped since soon after the new campus opened in 2005.

SLCC Chancellor Natalie Harder tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1dHnuNQ ) the has been out of space since 2008.

Harder began piecing together the $2.1 million local match last year.
