The Problem

 In 2021, 14.1 percent of Nevada’s population lived below the poverty line. This was an increase from the previous year, when the poverty rate in Nevada stood at 12.8 percent.  This impacts children disproportionately, who depend on their parents and guardians to provide for them

The Solution

Each year, we advocate for a number of measures designed to target children and families’ economic well-being – usually through targeted programs in other areas (such as expanded Medicare) to help families below the poverty line.
