School COVID Testing Resources
The State of Nevada Department of Health and Human Services received the ELC Reopening Schools grant (April 2021 - July 2023) from the CDC to support COVID testing and mitigation in Nevada early childhood education centers (ECEs) and K-12 schools. The purpose of this grant is to support safe, in-person learning by integrating testing and mitigation as an overall COVID prevention strategy. The resources available through this award are aimed at providing support for schools to detect and prevent the transmission of COVID within ECEs and K-12 schools.
Grant funds may be available for your ECE or K-12 school in the 2022-23 school year. To inquire about whether your organization qualifies for ELC Reopening Schools grant funds, complete this short online inquiry form Inquiry Form-Nevada ELC Reopening Schools Grant.
