Expanding the Reach of Services


Leveraging the Self-Funded model, Nebraska Interactive has partnered with the NDA to create and maintain 20 unique services across 16 years.

These services required little to no up front costs and include maintenance and security. How does that work? They capture a small convenience fee for online transactions, and fund additional services for the state with no cost to the tax payer or government agency.
