We are currently accepting nominations for the 2018 Showcase Community Award to be presented at our celebration of National Community Development Week. This celebratory event is held at the State Capitol in Lincoln on a date to be announced in the spring.
Our Showcase Community Award recognizes communities that have demonstrated an exceptional ability to: identify community development goals and strategies; combine local, state, and federal resources to achieve those goals; and accomplish major projects with positive impacts in the community. Communities are recognized for their achievements completed within the past five years with major emphasis upon a community’s ability to access and effectively harness Community Development Block Grant funds.
All Nebraska communities are eligible except for the Housing and Urban Development identified entitlement communities (Bellevue, Grand Island, Lincoln, Omaha) and communities that won the award in the past 5 years (Hastings, Superior, Lexington, Hartington, Falls City).
Nominations must be received by Friday, February 23, 2018. Questions? Please contact Rebecca Schademann by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 402-471-3172
