Business Specialists Funded by NDED
The Nebraska Department of Economic Developmentís support for REAPís six Business Specialists has been continued for another two years through June 30, 2007. This support, delivered through the Department of Economic Developmentís Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, has been instrumental in expanding REAP to all rural areas of Nebraska. It makes Business Specialists possible across the state to provide lending, training, networking, and one-on-one technical assistance to rural startup and existing small business people.
REAPís goal is to assist small businesses as they strive to find success for themselves, their families, and their communities. REAPís mission of strengthening rural communities through small, self-employed business development is made possible with this key funding piece. We are proud to have the Nebraska Department of Economic Development as our partner.
