BACKGROUND: 

On December 1, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved submission of Scope of Work and grant award the from the State of Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) for a new one-time funding award through the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) Plan of Safe Care Program to address the needs of infants identified as being affected by all substance abuse or Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Upon the expiration of the CARA grant on September 30, 2022, DFS requested that the State continue funding for prevention programs for substance abused infants.

Upon BCC approval, DFS will continue to engage community partnership to provide prevention services for up to an estimated 400 infants and families annually identified as being affected by perinatal substance use.

The award process for this grant differs from the normal grant application process as funding is made available to the State and passed through to DFS without advance notice, application submission or competitive process.  In addition, funding availability is not known until an award notice is received from the State.

Staff request the BCC approve the ratification of the grant award.
