Aging services offers senior nutrition contracts

Nevada Appeal Capitol Bureau

Nevada’s Aging and Disability Services Division is seeking applicants to provide nutrition services to individuals in senior centers or homebound because of age disability or illness.

There’s $5.7 million available under the Older Americans Act and state money to pay for those services.

The services, according to the notice, are aimed at those “in greatest social and economic need with particular attention to low income individuals, minority individuals, those in rural communities, those with limited English proficiency and those at risk of institutional care.”

The funds are available to public agencies, nonprofits and for profit businesses and will be granted for a one year period beginning Oct. 1 but can be extended for another year “contingent on grantees meeting or exceeding goals and objectives.”

More information is available at the division website: or by calling 687-4210 in Carson City , 688-2964 in Reno or 738-1966 in Elko.

Applications must be received by 4 p.m. June 7.
