The deadline to register is Monday, September 19, 2022. The individual registration fee is $130, which includes the cost of a printed CDBG Administration training manual. Individuals who wish to attend only certain sections of the training may register at no cost; however, partial attendance does not meet the CDBG Certification requirement. The last day to receive a refund for a cancelled registration is October 3.
DED administers federal CDBG funding on behalf of the State of Nebraska to counties and incorporated municipalities within the non-entitlement areas throughout the state; this includes all communities except for Omaha, Lincoln, Bellevue and Grand Island. These four entitlement communities receive funding directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The CDBG program is designed to develop viable communities by creating a suitable living environment and expanded economic opportunities, with the primary goal of benefitting low- and moderate-income persons.
