Lang's Impact on Southern Nevada

The Lincy Institute is a public policy think tank organized to conduct and support research improving health, education, economic development, governance, non-profits, and social services in Nevada. This research is used to build capacity for service providers and enhance efforts to draw state and federal money to the greater Las Vegas region. The Lincy Institute also highlights key issues that affect public policy and quality-of-life decisions on behalf of children, families, and communities in Nevada.
