The grant is projected to assist approximately 225 veterans and/or family members find work in Southern Nevada over a two-year period.
Also at The Smith Center celebration, Bank of America announced more than $2 million in financial support for 75-plus Southern Nevada community nonprofits. The event provided a unique opportunity for Las Vegas’ nonprofit leaders to come together and celebrate successes within our community.
