Civic Health Programs

Our CIVIC HEALTH INITIATIVES aim to create vibrant, active communities through the support of the four civic indicators: social connectedness, confidence in institutions, community engagement, and political involvement.


A more modern and robust democracy for all Nebraskans means engaged and informed citizens who take action in their communities in meaningful ways. Civic Nebraska strengthens our state’s civic fabric through training and programming for Nebraska towns, cities, neighborhoods, and citizens.

Our civic health initiatives fortify our state’s civic makeup. We lead Nebraska communities in building asset maps to examine natural strengths and ways to improve. This results in new ways to tackle local issues.

We base our work on four civic health indicators:

Communities with strong civic health have resilient, thriving economies; representative, accountable governments; and strong social connections.
