In light of the state’s current economic reality, the Nebraska Sesquicentennial Commission has made the difficult decision to discontinue its grant program, which was made possible through revenues generated by the sale of commemorative license plates. Remaining and future earned funds will be used to help support the Commission’s ongoing statewide initiatives for the benefit of all Nebraskans.

We are proud to have been able to grant more than $33,000 in financial support back to local communities, individuals and organizations spearheading programs, projects and events in celebration of Nebraska’s 150th anniversary in 2017. Thank you to all of those who have worked so diligently to create meaningful programming and events. Your efforts have truly made it a statewide celebration.
