Estimated Size of Grant:

There are two application tracks, each with an 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.

- 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, 2020 to June 30, 2021.

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, unless your agency receives written authorization from Department of Family Services, Department of Juvenile Justice Services or Department of Social Services.
- 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 application for OAG funds will become available beginning Monday, October 21, 2019.

The deadline for completing the Pre-Application is Friday, November 8, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. You must complete and pass the Pre-Application to gain access to the full application.

The deadline for completing the Entire OAG Application is Wednesday, November 22, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. PST.

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.

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.
