For years, many Nebraskans in communities statewide have greatly benefited from funding received through Nebraska’s Community Development Block Grant program. You’re encouraged to read about their successes—from safe, affordable, accessible housing, updated infrastructure, and expanding workforces, to improved water and wastewater systems, new or renovated senior or day care centers, and new tourism facilities—their stories are waiting to be told.
