The application for Family, Friend and Neighbor (FFN) Providers participating in the subsidy program is now available online at https://nevadachildcare.org/financialassistance/. The informational webinar for FFN providers which provides additional instruction and answers to some questions regarding the application and process has also been uploaded.

Based on questions and conversation regarding the appropriate use of funds for FFN providers that took place during the September 16, 2021 webinar, DWSS has determined that all FFN provider stipends will be considered WAGES and that no financial reporting on the use of funds will be required. FFN providers will still need to report on financial assistance provided to families, as well as the impact of the stipends. Providers will receive a reporting form upon approval of their application.

Please review the NOFO, application instructions and webinar recording for additional information.
