The online survey will be open until 5 p.m. on Friday, April 8, 2016. The deadline to submit paper copies is the same as the online survey.
The results of this short survey will help determine service priorities for future funding by the State of Nevada. The survey is part of a needs assessment that is conducted in even-numbered years on behalf of the Grants Management Advisory Committee (GMAC) by the Office of Community Partnerships and Grants (also known as the Grants Management Unit in the Director's Office of the Department of Health and Human Services). Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 439.630 requires public input into the process that is used to establish priorities for the Fund for a Healthy Nevada.
