Local economic and workforce development agencies got a shot in the arm Dec. 18 thanks to more than $152,000 in grants from the Lincoln Financial Foundation.

Funding will support nonprofit development efforts at all stages, including high school and college student outreach, financial literacy programming as well as entrepreneurial networking initiatives.

Organizations receiving at least $25,000 were the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Greater Omaha Alliance for Business Ethics, Family Housing Advisory Services and the Chicano Awareness Center.

The Metropolitan Community College Foundation received $15,000 and Youth Care & Beyond, which works with developmentally delayed individuals, received $10,000.

The Lincoln Foundation has contributed more than $4 million to Omaha nonprofits since 2006 and the latest round of funding is part of $846,600 in grants awarded in 2013.
