Developmental Disabilities of Clark County (formerly MRDD) is supported by a property tax levy passed in 2003.
Why is the Developmental Disabilities of Clark County levy important?
- We help children grow into independent adults.
- We help individuals live independently, get jobs and benefit our local economy.
- We teach living skills that help people become valuable citizens.
- Kindness, compassion and caring for our citizens make our county a great place in which to live.
How will levy funds be used?
To meet the needs of local individuals who have developmental disabilities. Our programs include:
- Early childhood therapy
- Job training and placement
- Independent living assistance
- Specialized transportation
- Residential living for those who cannot live alone
- Training and resources for parents, caregivers and teachers
Why is this levy needed?
The State and Federal government only provides funding for certain programs. In order to provide services such as the FF Mueller Residential Center and QUEST Adult Services, local dollars are needed.
Developmental Disabilities of Clark County has always been a good steward of public money. In addition, we consistently seek out grants and donations in order to meet needs and stretch our local tax dollars. For example, in 2013 and 2012, we received over $1 million in grants to help purchase vehicles and provide transportation.
