The Nevada Registry and the Nevada Association for the Education of Young Children (NevAEYC) are pleased to announce another opportunity to apply for the Early Childhood Staff Stipend Incentive award.
Financial stipends will once again be administered by NevAEYC to eligible Registry members with funding from the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS). This stipend is designed to lessen the financial impact early childhood educators endured during the COVID-19 pandemic, and beyond. Approved applicants will receive a stipend in the amount of $1,000 (issued directly to individuals; not the program they are employed with). The deadline to apply is June 30, 2024*. Stipends will be issued on a first come, first serve basis.
*The application period may close sooner if all available funds are awarded prior to this date.
Who is eligible to apply?
Anyone who is an active member of The Nevada Registry AND working in an eligible program at the time of application may apply for the stipend.
