MILLION BACK TO
NEBRASKA

The Nebraska Lottery began operating September 11, 1993 and to date, has produced a total of $527,500,109 for its beneficiary funds. Its proceeds are distributed quarterly in accordance with the direction established by the Legislature.

Amendment 4 passed by Nebraska voters in November of 2004 established the following distribution formula: Education as directed by the Legislature (44.5 percent) - currently divided among the Education Innovation Fund and Nebraska Opportunity Grant Fund; Nebraska Environmental Trust Fund (44.5 percent); Nebraska State Fair (10 percent); and the Compulsive Gamblers Assistance Fund (1 percent, plus the first $500,000 in fund proceeds each fiscal year).

LB956 passed by the Nebraska Legislature in April of 2010 renamed the Nebraska Scholarship Fund to the Nebraska Opportunity Grant Fund.

Criteria for proceeds distribution are established by the beneficiary funds in accordance with legislative mandates. Every county in Nebraska has received service through grants funded with Nebraska Lottery proceeds.
