Congratulations to our 2013 Grant Recipient, Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth, who will be receiving $350,000! NWP looks forward to working with NPHY on the expansion of their Drop in Center and services for their clients. Congratulations are also in order for New Vista Ranch, the recipient of our 2013 Founders' Gift of $30,000. It was a difficult decision with two such worthy projects. We thank all of our applicants this year for their work in our community.
Thank you to all the nonprofits who attended our workshops and submitted their grant applications last month. The Outreach Committee received 39 Letters of Inquiry for the 2014 Grant. They have been vetted for NWP baseline criteria and next month the Grant Screening Committee will begin their review.
