Another Norfolk group, Northeast Economic Development Inc., is receiving nearly $366,000 to acquire vacant lots and build four single-family homes.

NEHI, Inc., in Allen will receive $250,000 to buy and rehabilitate eight homes.

In Tekamah, the Three Rivers Housing Development Corporation is receiving $150,000 to buy and rehabilitate five homes.

In several cases, the awards will also help provide down payment assistance.
