Economic Development


For more than fifty years, NPPD and its predecessors have maintained an organized economic development program with a full-time staff dedicated to the promotion of sustained economic growth in Nebraska. NPPD’s Economic Development Team partners with NPPD’s wholesale customers, as well as regional and statewide economic development allies, concentrating on positioning communities and regions for economic growth, assisting with the expansion and retention of existing industry, and/or attracting new business.

The Economic Development Team manages a dedicated economic development website, as a resource to business prospects, site selection consultants, and our communities. The site provides economic development services in Nebraska including community research information and demographics, industrial properties and site selection and new business recruitment, business retention and business expansion.
