Clark County School District distribution

Clark County School District (CCSD) will be providing free school meals to all children 2 – 18 years of age. CCSD is able to extend the meals to all children after the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved a waiver that CCSD requested.

Students may pick up meals at any food site. A student’s parent/guardian may also pick up meals for students without the child present during the meal pickup.

Three Square Food Bank work with a service network of community partners (this includes nonprofit and faith-based organizations, schools and after school and feeding sites) in our community to reach struggling individuals and families at risk of hunger. In 2019, we distributed more than 41 million meals, the equivalent of more than 50 million pounds of food and grocery product, through our community partners.

This food is for household consumption and is free, but recipients must meet state and federal guidelines. Soup kitchens and other non-profit organizations that prepare and serve meals for needy individuals can also receive food at no cost.

The CARES Housing Assistance Program is being administered by the Nevada Housing Division in coordination with Clark County Social Services, the Reno Housing Authority, and the Nevada Rural Housing Authority.

The State of Nevada is providing $30 million to support the Program using Coronavirus Relief Funds authorized under the CARES Act. Funds under the State Program will also provide additional support to the existing $30 million in rental assistance which has been allocated by Clark County.

In order to be eligible for funds, applicants:

  • Must have a gross annual household income that is at or below 120% of Area Median Income;
  • Must not be receiving Federal Voucher Housing Assistance; and
  • Must have household liquid resources less than $3,000.

Applicants will be directed to the appropriate housing agency based on their county of residence. Upon successful completion of the application, tenants will be notified upon approval and funds will be disbursed directly to the tenant’s landlord.
