A brief description of the institution’s sustainability projects fund:

Project funds were given though a Central Community College Mini Grant from 2016-2019. In 2019 and currently the Nebraska State Fair is funding student projects for the Sustainability Pavilion through the Nebraska State Fair Sustainability Pavilion Projects fund.

A brief description of the multi-stakeholder decision-making process used to determine which projects receive funding through the sustainability projects fund:

Central Community College has a mini grant committee that allots funding to various areas. After the Environmental Sustainability Office was awarded the funding for student projects, students in the Students-4-Sustainability club were able to pitch ideas and then receive funding for the completion of the projects. Students outside of the club who had projects related to sustainability were able to participate as well, and club membership was encouraged.
