Estimated Total Program Funding:


Estimated Size of Grant:

There are two application tracks, each with a tentative allocation of $1.5 million.
- Department Initiative: ($1.5 Million) Programs must request a minimum of $30,000 to be considered for funding. There is no maximum dollar amount limit, however, please consider the total funding available for Department Initiatives. It is your agency’s responsibility to reach out to each County Department regarding their gaps and needs.
- Community Initiative: ($1.5 Million) Programs must request a minimum of $10,000 to be considered for funding. The maximum amount allowed is $75,000.

Term of Contract:

Clark County OAG funds will be made available to Board of County Commissioners’ approved programs from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grant applications can only be accepted from nonprofit organizations and local government entities, not from individuals or from for-profit firms.

To be eligible for funding:
- Only agencies that have been funded in the past as a Department Initiative may apply for the Department Initiative track.
- Project must provide services and assistance that substantially benefits Clark County residents (NRS 244.1505).

While County funds may be used to support year-end recognition events for volunteers and/or clients, County funds will not reimburse expenses related to fundraising activities, meals provided to staff, nor any alcoholic beverages. County does not reimburse cash payments.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline for completing the pre-application is Thursday, January 14, 2021. You must complete and pass the pre-application to gain access to the full application.

The deadline for completing the entire OAG application is Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 4:00 PM.

You cannot complete the OAG application until your pre-application has been reviewed and approved. You will receive an email indicating whether your pre-application has been approved at which point you may proceed to completing the entire OAG application.

Note there are two separate applications in ZoomGrants for each track.

Note: County grants are disbursed as reimbursement only. Grant funds are paid to grant recipients based on actual expenditures. The agency must first expend its own funds on the “activities” approved in the Resolution to Grant funds, and then submit appropriate documentation as a Request for Reimbursement.

Only agencies that have been funded in the past as a Department Initiative may apply for the Department Initiative track. Agencies may choose to apply for both tracks if they qualify, but may not submit the same program to both tracks—doing so will disqualify your application in both tracks. Agencies may submit a maximum of three different program applications for the Department Initiative track. Department Initiative applications that are not selected will be placed into the Community Initiative track to be considered. Agencies may submit a maximum of two different program applications under the Community Initiative track.
