City of Crete Economic Development

The City of Crete recognizes the need for business and government to work together for economic development and works to further this concept through the Economic Development Committee and the Economic Development Office.


The Economic Development Department serves as a point of contact for local businesses, businesses looking to relocate into Crete, development organizations, and state and federal agencies. The development office can provide information about Crete’s demographics, housing, infrastructure, and other aspects of the community on request, or there is also data available on our website. The City of Crete is proud to be a Nebraska Department of Economic Development Certified Community.

Incentive programs include Downtown Revitalization, LB840 Economic Development, and Tax Increment Financing.
