OMAHA — First National Bank is accepting proposals for its upcoming community development grants targeting educated workforce programs.

Such programs, said Alec Gorynski, vice president, community development and corporate philanthropy, are dedicated to strengthening individual core competencies that will improve personal economic self-sufficiency, including adult basic education and vocational and employability training.

Gorynski said programs must benefit low- or moderate-income individuals, families and/or communities in the First National Bank footprint, which includes Nebraska, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota and Texas.

First National Bank will accept applications from eligible nonprofit community organizations for educated workforce initiatives through July 8. More information is available at

In the first grant cycle of 2019, First National awarded $840,000 to 46 organizations in Nebraska and the six other states in its market area.
