In Nevada’s 2022 State of the State Address, Governor Sisolak announced an additional $160 million to be invested in child care providers. These funds will be distributed directly to those organizations in need and for specific staffing and technology needs at state agencies.

- $42,000 to the White Pine Ministerial Association
- $41,600 to the Carson Valley Community Food Closet
In addition to this direct funding, the state’s Interim Finance Committee approved another $5.08 million for state agencies:
- $1.5 million to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources
- $1.4 million to the Gaming Control Board
- $652,000 to the Nevada Equal Rights Commission

How can you position your organization to boost funding?
Information is everything these days – it’s about quality AND quantity. You need a system in place that lets you collect and report on criteria no one else is utilizing. This differentiates your organization from the flock and makes you more likely to land funding like this in your backyard rather than in your neighbor’s.
