All applications must address the Partnerships for Innovation purpose and areas of focus, serve consortia member populations statewide via face-to-face, online, distance learning or by other formats, be innovative and must be submitted by a consortia member, Nebraska Department of Education or Nebraska Career Education.
The deadline for applications has been extended.

The full Leadership Council will vote on the proposals at the next full meeting in April and will notify applicants by April 14, 2017 of the status of the application.
