Beginning in 1999 the Winnebago Tribe petitioned the federal government to construct a new, larger Winnebago-Omaha Hospital facility in Winnebago.
The facility is expected to be completed in 2003, employing an additional 130 persons in the community.

The Winnebago Public Schools recently completed a large expansion project due to its extremely overcrowded conditions in the existing building. The $7,000,000 expansion was funded through a local tax bond election issue passed in 2000, state tax funds, and loans. The expansion included new kitchen and cafeteria facilities, a new regulation-size gymnasium, and classrooms for the elementary school. The school had completed an expansion of its recreation facilities in 2000 that included construction of a new track and football field.
The Little Priest Tribal College recently completed some additions to its facilities, which include adding two wings. One of the wings will house a new cultural learning center, tribal museum, and the language and cultural department, and the other wing will house a new student center and computer lab. Construction of a new library will begin in the Fall of 2002. Funding for this project has been combined from several sources - the U.S. Department of Agriculture/Rural Development, the Lilly Foundation, the Kellogg Foundation, and Title 3 Federal funds.
