November 12, 2020
The Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED) has selected nine community applicants to receive funding under the Public Works opportunity of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for 2020. The awards total $3,887,848. Superior received $435,000 for sidewalks.
“CDBG can help our communities obtain financing to meet their challenges head-on,” said Anthony L. Goins, DED director. “It can also be a launchpad for local projects that need assistance getting off the ground. Our Department is proud to administer CDBG funding on behalf of our cities, towns and villages throughout the state.”
DED received 16 applications for CDBG Public Works funding in 2020. Each of the selected recipients have demonstrated a solid approach to community development within their project designs, while showing that by way of collaboration, much-needed local facility and infrastructure improvements can be achieved.
