Thursday afternoon CoHab announced that it will be able to complete its renovations thanks to a $50,000 contribution from Shreveport's Downtown Development Authority and the Downtown Shreveport Development Corporation.

The funds will allow CoHab to finish improvements on its coworking facility in the newly revitalized Red River District under the Texas Street Bridge.

The DDA and DSDC each contributed $25,000 in funding to wrap up the project.  The expansion of the non-profit shared workspace will help support Shreveport-Bossier entrepreneurs and small businesses.

CoHab Executive Director John Grindley, said "The DDA and DSDC are doing incredible work towards revitalizing downtown Shreveport, and we at CoHab are excited to be part of the work that they're doing for our city."

Liz Swaine, Executive Director of the DDA/DSDC said, "The DDA has now contributed more than $200,000 to help create a space for entrepreneurs and small businesses to thrive and grow. We are especially excited about the youth and energy CoHab brings to downtown.''

A public grand opening for the facility will take place Friday, Sept. 20th.
