The Greater Fremont Development Council (GFDC) was one of 14 organizations to receive a grant award from a newly established state fund that aims to develop more rural workforce housing across Nebraska, GFDC announced yesterday.

The fund, known as the Rural Workforce Housing Investment Fund, was established through the passage of LB518. GFDC received $850,000 from the state program after raising more than $1 million locally for matching funds that were required for the application process, according to GFDC Executive Director Garry Clark.”
