The Fund for a Healthy Nevada (FHN) was created in accordance with Chapter 439, Sections 620–630, of the Nevada Revised Statutes to utilize 50% of tobacco settlement monies received or recovered by the state of Nevada.

The Task Force for the FHN was created by the Nevada Legislature in NRS 439.625 as a decision-making body for these funds. The current FHN allocations are:  30% to Independent Living for Seniors, 20% to Tobacco Control/Treatment, 10% to Children's Health, 7.5% to Disability Services, 5% to Disability Rx, and 30% to Senior Rx.

A summary of the Master Settlement Agreement between tobacco companies and several states can be viewed online.

The 2007 Nevada Legislature enacted Assembly Bill 182. AB 182 dissolved the Task Force and transferred most of those duties to the Grants Management Advisory Committee (GMAC) effective July 1, 2007. AB 182 amended three of the FHN allocations. Effective SFY09, the percent of funding for Tobacco Control/Treatment will change from 20% to 15%. Disability Services will increase funding from 7.5% to 10%, and Disability Rx will increase from 2.5% to 5%.

Staff from the Grants Management Unit (GMU) solicit applications and administer grants for tobacco control, children’s health, and disability services. 

Grants are awarded on a biennial basis. The next award cycle will be July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2010. The grant application will be available in early 2008. Current grantee information is available through this link.

Meeting information related to the GMAC and Subcommittees is located on the GMU Web site.
