Community Housing Planning:

Does your community have housing needs, but you’re not sure how to meet those needs?  Do your housing needs include:
  • Workforce housing?
  • Rehabilitation of existing homes?
  • New housing construction?
  • Rental housing?
  • Senior housing?
  • Other housing?
The Central Nebraska Housing and Economic Developers would like to begin assisting your community in preparation for future housing grants.  CNHED will work with community leaders to:
  • Complete a Community Assets Checklist
  • Identify community assets and gaps to be filled
  • Develop a plan to fill gaps in data/information
  • Identify housing needs and priorities
  • Gather partners and public support for selected housing project
  • Write a grant application for State and Federal funding
