Nebraska Lottery Funded Grants

NE Two-Year Opportunity GrantsThe inaugural competition was conducted in the spring/summer of 2017 and resulted in the award of thirteen grants totaling $286,121. Proposals were reviewed by external teams that made funding recommendations to the State Board of Education. Grant amounts ranged from $10,000-$30,000 plus contributions from 63 community partners to collaboratively deliver services. Grants had a two-year grant period of June 7, 2017-August 31, 2019. After award, all grantees met with the 21st CCLC statewide evaluator to develop an agreed upon evaluation plan that included methods of monitoring and/or measuring the effectiveness of the proposed activities using 21st CCLC data collection regimens. These thirteen projects provided an expanded learning opportunity club at thirty-two elementary and thirteen middle school 21st CCLC sites across Nebraska. The programming at these forty-five sites provided additional hands-on learning and positive youth development experiences for students.
