What is Stay Local!
The Urban Conservancy initiated its Stay Local! project in 2003 to help foster economic resiliency and continuity in the city. Our goal was to get people involved in their communities and educate them about entrepreneurship and how shopping locally can help to build, insure, and improve neighborhoods in the Greater New Orleans Metro Area, which includes the parishes of Orleans, Jefferson, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, and St. Tammany.
What we do
Stay Local! aims to help local independent businesses compete effectively. Through our website, print guides, business summits, and marketing campaigns we provide businesses with a networking platform connecting them affordably to new markets, new resources, and each other.
