College of Southern Nevada Loses $1.7 Million Grant

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada’s largest public college has lost a federal grant worth nearly $2 million.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Sunday that the College of Southern Nevada is no longer accepting funding after U.S. Labor Department officials complained the school was not following allocation rules.

CSN is also returning $84,000 it received from the Labor Department since October 2014.

The $1.7 million grant was to go toward increasing services for military veterans seeking employment.

The college used the funding to hire three advisers for veterans.

The advising stopped in May after federal Labor Department officials said the grant wasn’t being applied toward new programs or activities.

Now, the funds will be divided among three community colleges in Northern Nevada who had also requested grant money.
