BACKGROUND: 

The Mt. Charleston License Plate Program was created during the 1999 Nevada legislative session.  NRS 482.37935 details the creation of the plate, collection of the fees and how the funds should be spent.  The funds in the account must be used only for the support of programs for the natural environment of the Mt. Charleston area, including, without limitation, programs to improve the wildlife habitat, ecosystem, forest, public access to the area and its recreational use, and must not be used to replace or supplant money available from other sources. 

Grant applications were made available to the public on March 2, 2021 through March 22, 2021. A total of 8 applications were received from 7 different agencies and groups (Friends of Nevada Wilderness, Mt. Charleston Fire Protection District, LVMPD, Back Country Horsemen of Nevada, Southern Nevada Conservancy, Nevada Highway Patrol and Outside Las Vegas Foundation) totaling $164,223.31.

On April 27, 2021, the Mt. Charleston Town Advisory Board provided applicants an opportunity to give a brief presentation to highlight the significance of their proposed project(s). Following an in-depth review, seven groups were recommended for the budgeted funding totaling $150,200.  However, additional funding is available to fund all qualified requests.  The BCC is asked to authorize funding in the total amount requested.

The BCC may provide funds from the account to an appropriate person or entity to carry out the provisions previously stated.
