Nebraska’s PDG work is led by Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (NDHHS) under the authority of Governor Pete Ricketts, in partnership with the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE), Nebraska Children and Families Foundation, the University of Nebraska system, and many other partners.
There are two major sub awardees to oversee the implementation of grant funded activities, including the NDE and Nebraska Children. NDE is coordinating work among the NDE and NDHHS Departments involved. Nebraska Children has taken on an overall project coordination role. Included within that is determining the organization of the project to streamline efforts, assure accountability, and provide ongoing reporting on overall progress of grant activities. An organizational chart was developed to help all stakeholders visualize how the work will proceed and the roles of this diverse group of stakeholders.
