CENTRAL NEBRASKA – Is your community experiencing a shortage of available, quality housing? Want to learn more about how your community can begin to address your housing needs?
The Central Nebraska Economic Development District (CNEDD) is a 14-county regional development organization that encourages cooperation between local government officials, community-based organizations and the private sector. The District provides the link between federal and state programs, and the local level where development actually occurs. CNEDD attained recognition as an official Economic Development District by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration (EDA) in 2003. CNEDD is the largest economic development district with the lowest population density per square mile in Nebraska.
The Central Nebraska Housing and Economic Developers will be launching a new Housing Study-Lite Program for the communities in our region on Thursday, June 28 at the Loup City Community Center (803 O St, Loup City, NE 68853), from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
This program was designed by housing leaders across the State to empower community leaders to engage in self-learning and take initial steps to tackle a housing challenge within their respective communities.
The Housing Study-Lite Toolkit contains forms and templates that will enable a community to gather housing needs from the following groups: households, employers, employees, and realtors, as well as a housing windshield assessment guide, and guidance on how to gather housing census information.
This program is FREE to members of the Central Nebraska Economic Development District. CNEDD will be sharing these tools with participants to guide them through the process of a community to acquire self-information of their current housing conditions and needs. CNEDD cares deeply about the empowerment and growth of our communities. Come and learn how we can help YOU!
