Grants of up to $15,000 to Nebraska municipalities to plan the development or improvement of public facilities. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full proposal. The goal of the program is to improve the quality of life for local residents in communities throughout the State.
The purpose of this program is to support, enhance, and grow the Good Life throughout Nebraska. Awarded to municipalities and administered by the Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED), CCCFF grants of assistance encourage and foster quality of life in Nebraska's communities. CCCFF allows for the distribution of State aid to support the development of community facilities such as libraries, recreation and wellness centers, gathering spaces, convention centers, town squares, and cultural centers.
Due to the projected impact on the fund’s future receipts due to COVID-19, awards for the application cycle starting January 2021 will be limited to planning studies for the development of future construction and rehabilitation projects. DED appreciates how important this program has been for communities, and does not expect this limitation to carry into future application cycles.
A wide variety of facilities are eligible for planning grants, including community centers, parks, libraries, recreation centers, public gathering spaces, etc. For more information on eligible facilities, see https://opportunity.nebraska.gov/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/CCCFF-Application-and-Program-Guidelines.pdf#page=5.
Example uses for planning grants include engineering and technical studies directly related to eligible projects; this could include feasibility studies, facility studies, programming and schematic designs, construction documents, etc.
