Grants Awarded for Several Nebraska Cities to Help Revitalize Communities

Posted: Updated:

Several cities across Nebraska will be receiving a share of $94,500 from the Community Development Block Grant to help revitalize their communities.

The cities of Columbus, Fremont, Grand Island, Hastings, Kearney, Norfolk and North Platte submitted applications in November to further evaluate the communities' housing and public works activities benefiting low- and moderate-income persons in community neighborhoods.

The evaluated activities began in 2009 with the initial Comprehensive Needs Assessment and Revitalization Strategy. This new evaluation extends the participation in the program for each city for the next three years.

The funding, based on what each community needed to update and evaluate its 2009 community revitalization strategy, will be allocated as follows (with each city making a 25 percent total project matching contribution):

  • Columbus—$12,000
  • Fremont—$12,000
  • Grand Island—$15,000
  • Hastings--$15,000
  • Kearney—$15,000
  • Norfolk—$10,500
  • North Platte—$15,000 

Grants are administered by the Nebraska Department of Economic Development from the state's annual allocation of CDBG funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
