  • Federal Funding

    Nevada sits at the bottom of the rankings, 53rd out of 53 states and territories, for receiving formula-based-aid from the federal government. The Lincy Institute fosters research that will build capacity for service providers and enhance efforts to draw state and federal money to the greater Las Vegas. 

  • Data Matters

    The Lincy Institute connects best practices to cutting-edge research and data analysis to support planning across state, local, and private-agency boundaries.

  • Partnerships

    As we seek to increase university-community partnerships in the Las Vegas social service sectors, we solicit the advice of leaders from both the campus and local community to identify and prioritize the most pressing social issues.

  • Cradle to Career

    Education is one of the most important investments a community can make.  Not only does it provide our children and youth with access to knowledge, skills, and opportunity; education serves as a key driver for Southern Nevada’s economy and quality of life. 

  • Healthcare is a Priority

    In response to a “call to action”, The Lincy Institute is working with public and private partners to address access to healthcare services, examine cost improvements, and support healthy community initiatives.
