Commission for Cultural Affairs

The Commission for Cultural Affairs is established by state law (NRS 233C.200, et. seq.) to advise the State on matters pertaining to the preservation and promotion of Nevada's cultural resources. The Commission is composed of representatives of the Nevada Humanities Committee, the Board of Museums and History, the Nevada Arts Council, the State Council on Libraries and Literacy, and the tourism industry.

Each year the Commission awards financial assistance, made possible through the State's bonding program, to governmental entities and nonprofit organizations conducting projects that preserve and protect historic buildings used to develop a network of cultural centers and activities.  Private property owners are not eligible. 

According to testimony from Lori Chatwood of the Treasurer’s office, the bonds will go on sale April 2, 2014 and will close on April 22, 2014 when the funds will be available.
