GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — More workforce housing projects are underway in Grand Island.

On Tuesday, the Grand Island Area Economic Development Corporation announced $3.9 million worth of 0% revolving door funds for the Copper Creek subdivision on the city’s west side.  Corporation president Mary Berlie says the projects are in response to high demand for new houses.

“Grand Island continues to grow and prosper and economic development takes it very seriously to find solutions to our housing struggles," Berlie said. "As we grow, we need to have homes for our families.”

The new funds are supported by the city, LB840 funds and the state’s Rural Workforce Housing Fund.

It’s all part of the Build Grand Island program, which is now two years old. The program has raised a total of $5.2 million in funding designated for economic growth.
