Grants to Nebraska municipalities in eligible regions to support the revitalization of business areas in eligible locations. Funding is intended for the implementation of projects that will redevelop or revitalize downtown infrastructure, address safety and health concerns, and develop a greater capacity for commercial growth. Activities must meet the national objective of benefitting low- and moderate-income persons (through the subcategories LMI Area Benefit and/or, LMI Limited Clientele) or aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight in either an area (SBA) or spot basis (SBS). Eligible Applicants include every Nebraska incorporated municipality with a population of less than 50,000 and who are not classified as a CDBG Entitlement Community (Omaha, Lincoln, Bellevue, and Grand Island).

Activities assist communities in their implementation of comprehensive downtown revitalization plan in order to stabilize and enhance clearly defined downtown areas, providing benefit to low- and moderate-income residents of the community or aid in the elimination of substandard or blighted structures and areas in the downtown.

DTR resources are for implementation of the project (i.e., physical improvements to the built environment); such funds become available to the applicant upon successful completion of the requirements of a downtown revitalization predevelopment/planning study. Because responsible, intelligent implementation arises from well-informed planning processes, applicant must make available their DTR study prior to, or along with the application for DTR resources. Use of CDBG resources for planning activities is not required to access DTR resources.

The principle objective for the CDBG program is benefit to low- and moderate-income communities; therefore, priority is given to projects meeting the primary national objective of benefiting low- and moderate-income persons. Activities proposed in applications for CDBG funding in the DTR Opportunity must meet the national objective of benefitting low- and moderate-income persons (through the subcategories LMI Area Benefit and/or, LMI Limited Clientele) or aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight in either an area (SBA) or spot basis (SBS).
