The Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS) has just posted a Request for Application (RFA) to our website home page, to announce an opportunity for all qualified non-profit agencies to offer diaper distribution to TANF families with young children.

We are reaching out to ensure either your agency or one of your community partners who may be interested doesn’t miss this opportunity. Please feel free to share this information with your networks.

The State of Nevada is utilizing a portion of the TANF Block Grant funds to provide diaper assistance to qualifying TANF recipients. Our agency is currently seeking applications from all eligible, non-profit community organizations to help provide diapers to child TANF recipients aged 3 or younger and/or pregnant mothers in at least their 6th month of pregnancy who are receiving TANF at the time of diaper assistance pre-registration.

A webinar will be held on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 at 9am to answer questions and provide an overview of the program. The award application deadline is Monday, November 28, 2022 at 5:00 pm.

For detailed information and to complete the Request For Application (RFA) please visit the DWSS Website: https://dwss.nv.gov/TANF/TANF_Diaper_Distribution_Grant_Information/

To be considered to receive a portion of any available TANF funds through this RFA, the agency must qualify as a non-profit and provide evidence as such. Any services/benefits administered using these funds must only be provided to the specific TANF recipient population mentioned in the RFA.

All interested non-profit agencies are encouraged to attend the webinar on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 from 9:00 am PT – 10:00 am PT.
