Pawnee City to receive DED funding

(KLZA)-- The Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED) has announced this year’s recipients under the Civic and Community Center Financing Fund.

Eight communities, including Pawnee City, will receive a portion of the $1,233,415 up for award, representing five Planning and three Capital Construction Projects.

This funding supports the development of civic, community and recreation centers. Buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places that are intended for conversion, rehabilitation or reuse are also eligible under the program.

The program is funded through a turn-back of 30% of State sales tax generated by arenas and nearby retailers. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on these venues, the amount available for award for 2022 was less than usual.

This year’s award recipients include The City of Pawnee City in the Civic and Community Center Financing Fund Capital Construction category.

Pawnee City will received $75,000 to use for the Cornerstone Community Building construction project.
