Gov. Ricketts Proclaims Community Development Week
Sunday, April 28, 2019
Today, Governor Pete Ricketts signed a proclamation declaring the week of April 22nd-26th as Community Development Week in the state of Nebraska.
“Community Development Week is an opportunity to celebrate the hard work by people across our state to create a great quality of life in their communities and grow Nebraska,” said Governor Ricketts. “It’s also a week when we acknowledge the federal, state and local resources, as well as the partnerships and local support, that make community and economic development achievements possible. Thank you to everyone on the team who is helping make our state the best place in the world to live, work and raise a family.”
Community Development Week (CD Week) is celebrated across the nation each year to acknowledge the impacts of community-building programs such as the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Fund (HOME). These and other resources help communities carry out meaningful projects that enhance citizens’ quality of life. CD Week also acknowledges the partnerships and local engagement that make community development projects possible.
