This webinar will feature information about the Nebraska Small Business Assistance Act and grant qualifications.
Legislation was passed during the 2023 Legislative session LB450 which provided funding for this opportunity. The GROW Nebraska Foundation and the Nebraska Department of Economic Development have been charged with developing and administering the Nebraska Small Business Assistance Act.
