Dr. Jessica Word, associate professor in the School of Public Policy and Leadership, researched how COVID-19 has affected nonprofit organizations in Nevada. The attached report looks at how nonprofit organizations across the state of Nevada are struggling to operate in the face of changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and the on-going shutdowns in the state.
