Presenters included:

  • Dr. Marya Shegog, assistant professor at UNLV’s School of Community Health Sciences
  • Dr. Joe Morgan, assistant professor at UNLV’s School of Education

The fourth and final workshop in the series is scheduled for Monday, July 23.

The SNS grants competitiveness workshop series was developed to further the Strategic Framework for improving Southern Nevada’s grant capacity and competitiveness finalized in 2017.

Project partners include United Way of Southern Nevada, Guinn Center for Policy Priorities, Nevada Community Foundation, and State of the Nevada Grants Office.

According to the Guinn Center for Policy Priorities, Nevada currently ranks 44th nationally in federal grant funding per capita. Increasing the region’s share of federal grant dollars can lessen the pressure on the state’s general fund and ensure critical services and programs are available in the community as the region grows, according to Meredith Levine, the Guinn Center for Policy Priorities’ director of economic policy.
