CNEDD Awarded $383,350 in CARES Act Funds for Recovery Activities

The Central Nebraska Economic Development District has received an award of $383,350 from the Economic Development Administration’s CARES Act funds. The Economic Development Administration is a division of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The purpose of these funds is to help our region address economic impacts due to the Coronavirus Pandemic and build resiliency for the future.

As part of our plan, CNEDD will provide training to small businesses about alternative marketing and sales opportunities, explore prospects for expansion of local meat processing opportunities that would create local jobs and support the local livestock economy, and determine broadband needs for businesses, education and telehealth that will enhance and expand opportunities in the region.

Stay tuned for more information, as we will be launching the programs and services just as quickly as we can.

CNEDD provides business, community, and economic development services to the following counties in Central Nebraska: Blaine, Boyd, Brown, Cherry, Custer, Garfield, Greeley, Holt, Keya Paha, Loup, Rock, Sherman, Valley and Wheeler.
