      Diapering Resources Committee

      Recipients of public assistance and other low-income families have a lot to worry about, and Nevada leaders do not want diapers for infants to be one of those things. Reusing diapers, keeping diapers on too long, and not using diapers when needed can all create infection control and health issues for the child and family. The Diapering Resources Committee (DRC) will to research opportunities to increase the availability of diapers and diapering supplies to recipients of public assistance and other low-income families in Nevada.
