Nebraska officials say several cities will split thousands of dollars in federal funding for ongoing revitalization projects.
The state Department of Economic Development says about $94,000 in federal funds will be used to continue evaluating housing and public works activities that benefit low- and moderate-income people in community neighborhoods.
The cities have already started their individual projects through a three-year funding period that began in 2009.
The cities are Columbus, Fremont, Grand Island, Hastings, Kearney, Norfolk and North Platte. Each city will make a 25 percent total project matching contribution.
