Remember: thanks to a partnership between ONE and ioby, when you crowdfund a project that improves your neighborhood, donations to your campaign will be matched dollar for dollar up to $2000 on a first-come, first-served basis if your neighborhood group has completed its Lead Neighborhood Visioning Session. Haven’t done that yet, click here for more info so you can start the process.
We look forward to seeing what projects you’ve got in mind!

Last month, Sen. Matt Hanson from the Nebraska Legislature’s District 26 introduced LB 986, also known as the Neighborhood Improvements District Bill.
ONE Omaha – on behalf of the alliance presidents of Midtown, North, Northwest, South and Southwest Omaha – has suggested the Urban Affairs Committee oppose the bill, which enables the creation of Neighborhood Improvement Districts (similar to Business Improvement Districts) that give appointed board members the authority to create a special assessment on residents and direct the decision making and implementation process for neighborhood improvements.
The mission of Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 is to make streets safer for all who walk, cycle, play, drive and ride.
The Little Free Pantry was an idea that started in May of 2016 in Fayetteville, AR, to support those dealing with food insecurity. The goal of this project was to bring the community together to provide easily accessible foods and goods to local individuals in need.

The premiere Neighborhood Leadership Academy session was a success!
Seventeen community leaders attended a 2 hour workshop at UNO CEC.
When asked ‘What did you like best about today’s session?’ One participant said, “Engaging conversation driven through experience. Provided tips and posters from an applied perspective with good ideas that are often left untouched in similar community engagement type workshops.”
A community differs from a neighborhood. Neighborhoods are merely space; whereas, communities are comprised of people living and working together forming social bonds.
