The Nevada Institute for Children’s Research and Policy (NICRP) is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to improving the lives of children through research, advocacy, and other specialized services. Due to the high rate of child death in Nevada resulting from caregivers who are non-family members, the NICRP, through Prevent Child Abuse Nevada (PCA NV), received a grant from the Department of Health and Human Services to implement a program addressing this issue in Clark, Washoe, and Churchill counties.
