For over 30 years, the Nevada Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) has worked with community stakeholders to provide programs and services that prevent or reduce the impact of problem gambling in Nevada.
The 2016-2017 G.A.P.P. Infusion Grant Program provides financial and expert resources to equip qualified community organizations and agencies throughout Nevada to infuse problem gambling awareness into prevention activities targeting Youth, Families and Seniors. For profit, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organizations, local government, or tribal entities are eligible to apply for these grant awards ranging from $500 to $5,000 through June 30, 2017.

Each of these programs includes full instructional support through teaching kits that include discussion guides, information handouts, and evaluation surveys. Orientation and Facilitator training will be provided for all project staff, prior to program implementation.
Funding for the G.A.P.P. grants is provided under the NCPG Problem Gambling Prevention Initiative Grant through the State of Nevada Fund for Prevention and Treatment of Problem Gambling, administered by the Department of Health and Human Services, Grants Management Unit (DHHS). Funding is provided on a reimbursement basis for prevention activities completed each month, subject to reporting requirements.
