under “About CDBG …Community Development Block Grant Program”.
“The Community Development Block Grant is an important tool used by local and state officials as they tackle their most serious community development challenges, providing funding for public works and infrastructure, decent affordable housing, public services and economic development. Investing economic development dollars in both rural and urban Nebraska is important to the continued vitality of Nebraska’s communities. These grants are an important part of the economic development mindset that helps advance our state’s interests as part of the global economy.”>
–Governor Dave Heineman
"CDBG funds are often the catalyst in communities that create the momentum to start and follow through on a project or business venture. As city administrator for 14 years in two small towns, I have seen CDBG funds used to leverage many times more in local funds to provide housing and business momentum in Nebraska communities. CDBG investments creates a united local effort that carries into other projects.”
