Nevada Foundation Awards Another Round of Human Service Grant Funding

The Nevada Foundation, in partnership with the City of Nevada, has awarded $11,703.50 in human services grant funding.  These funds awarded to 3 non-profit organizations will provide necessities in the areas of food, shelter, and clothing in the community.

Mayor Brett Barker explains, “In the past the Council has considered these requests directly.  Upon the recommendation of our auditors, we developed a more formal and focused process to support these important causes in Nevada.  We are grateful that the Nevada Foundation leads the formal grant making process.”

A four-member committee evaluated and scored the applications.  Organizations selected to receive funding this round include:

  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Story County / support for the Nevada site
  • Harmony Clothing Closet, Inc / basement repairs to support additional storage
  • Salvation Army of Story County / rent and utility assistance for Nevada residents

The goal of the Human Services grant fund is to support projects that enhance the basic needs for food, shelter, and clothing in Nevada.

We have launched another funding round; applications will be due by November 3, 2023.  If you have questions regarding this year’s awards or the upcoming funding round, please contact Brenda Dryer, Nevada Foundation Board member at
