SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (by Release / KNEP) - Following a successful first year of grants for the 'Greater Good', Panhandle Partnership is seeking another round of applications for the program.

Greater Good grants are for community projects in the Panhandle that demonstrate sustainability and positive impact for the greater good of the entire community. Eligible applicants are not for profit organizations or government entities within the eleven counties of the Nebraska Panhandle.

Tyler Irvine with Panhandle Partnership tells NBC Nebraska that approx. $130,000 was awarded to 6 community-driven grants in the Panhandle during the first round last year. Irvine says grants typically cap at $50,000, but there can be exceptions depending on the project..

Selected projects will be based on a community plan undertaken through open, inclusive collaboration. Grant funds may be used for community capacity enhancement, construction, renovation, or purchase/improvement of a property or equipment.
