BACKGROUND: 

Clark County was recently awarded $440 million in Fiscal Recovery Funds under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). These funds provide a substantial infusion of resources to help turn the tide on the pandemic, address its economic fallout, and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable recovery.

At the October 5, 2021 Board of County Commissioners (County Commission) meeting, the County Commission directed staff to explore the cost of expanding monoclonal antibody treatments within the community using Fiscal Recovery Funds. 

Clark County and University Medical Center (UMC) have established the objectives and budget for the expansion of existing monoclonal antibody treatment clinics.  Objectives of the program will include, educating and informing the community of the benefits and availability of the Program, expanding the current capacity of monoclonal antibody treatments though the extension of clinic operating hours, expanding the number of staff, and/or expanding clinic locations. Clark County will provide up to $1,500,000 in Fiscal Recovery Funds to reimburse UMC for any unreimbursed costs of providing monoclonal antibody treatments through December 31, 2022.

The allocation of these funds meets the U.S Treasury compliance requirements in support of the County’s public health response to the pandemic.
