Nebraska outlines aid plan for ranchers, small businesses

Nebraska small businesses and livestock producers that took a hit from the coronavirus pandemic will get the chance to apply for financial assistance starting Monday, June 15.

The state will award grants of at least $12,000 to eligible businesses with five to 49 employees and livestock producers with one to 10 employees. The programs are a part of the $1.1 billion the state received from the federal government’s coronavirus relief package.

Gov. Pete Ricketts says state officials will distribute the money on a first-come, first-served basis.

Information about the grant programs, eligibility requirements, application deadlines and more can be found at

The application window begins Monday, June 15, and ends on June 26.
