LINCOLN – A Community Development Block Grant Certified Administrators Training will be taking place for those wishing to administer the CDBG projects in Nebraska in early May.
According to a release from the Department of Economic Development, the DED will host this training May 7-10 in Lincoln.
The CDBG program, administered by DED, awards funding to help communities provide decent, safe and sanitary housing, a suitable living environment and expanded economic opportunities. Its primary objective is to benefit low-and moderate-income persons.
The Nebraska CDBG program requires any municipality or county that receives CDBG funds to hire and/or employ a Nebraska Certified Administrator to oversee projects. DED offers full certification training once a year for individuals who will be administering CDBG projects and assisting with their successful implementation.
To become certified, individuals will need to complete the four-day course in its entirety and pass a written exam.
This year’s training will take place at the Hyatt Place Lincoln (600 Q Street, Lincoln, NE). Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m., with training commencing at 9 a.m.

Individuals who wish to attend only certain portions of the training can register to do so, with a course fee of $35 per day.
