Levy Information

A Developmental Disability is a disability that occurs before the person reaches twenty-two (22) years of age, which constitutes a substantial disability to the affected individual, and is attributable to mental retardation or related conditions which include cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism or other neurological conditions when such conditions result in impairment of general intellectual functioning.

Developmental Disabilities of Clark County (formerly MRDD) is supported by state and federal funds and a property tax levy passed in 2003.  Over 50% of our funding comes from the levy.

Why is the Developmental Disabilities of Clark County levy important?

  • We provide care for people who are severely disabled.
  • We provide job and living skills to help people with DD become more self-sufficient.
  • We provide long term care when family members can no longer provide support.
  • We are the only agency that provides funds for people who have DD.

Why is the levy needed?

The State and Federal government only funds certain programs. In order to provide services such as transportation, the FF Mueller Residential Center, therapy for babies and small children, and day habilitation programs at places including RMS, CRSI, CSS, Strive, Self-Reliance, Choices in Community Living, Toward Independence, and Quest Adult Services, local dollars are needed.

An Excellent Steward

Developmental Disabilities of Clark County is and continues to be an excellent steward of public money. In addition, we consistently seek out grants and donations in order to meet needs and stretch our local tax dollars.
