Local Incentives

The Local Option Municipal Economic Development Act (LB840, 1991) authorizes incorporated cities and villages to collect and set aside local tax dollars for economic development purposes. Local voters approve of a local economic development program plan and a local sales and/or property tax. The economic development program plan lays out how local taxes for the program are collected and spent.

Atkinson, Ewing, O’Neill, and Stuart have all approved LB840 plans and taxes to be used for economic development purposes and economic growth. Plans for these municipalities include loans for business start-ups and existing business growth. Plans also include matching grants for property improvement.
