Business partners and public officials came together to hear about economic development across the region at the Northeast Nebraska Economic Development District’s annual meeting in Norfolk.
Thomas Higginbotham, the executive director of the NENEDD, said over the past year, member communities and businesses were awarded more than $8.7 million in loans and grants to 17 communities, $2 million of which directly created or supported 237 jobs.
More than $7 million in public and private funds also was leveraged, meaning more than $13 million was invested in Northeast Nebraska communities, he said.
