Now Accepting Applications for the Military Base Development and Support Fund.
The Military Base Development and Support Fund was created by the Nebraska Legislature in 2022 and contains $25 million to contribute to construction, development, or support on any military base located in Nebraska. The purpose of the fund is to improve mission retention and recruitment; support the morale, health, and mental wellness of military members and families; and grow the economic impact of military bases in Nebraska.
The fund is administered by the Nebraska Department of Veterans’ Affairs (NDVA) under Nebraska Revised Statute §55-901. The fund contains $25M that may be used for projects on military bases located in Nebraska (see the above-referenced Statute for examples of projects potentially eligible for funding). NDVA requires a match of private funding in an amount equal to or greater than one-half of the total cost of the project to authorize an expenditure from the fund (1:1 minimum).
Applications will be accepted until all funds are awarded.
