All About the Grantee

Information about the duties and responsibilities

  • As the person who receives Ryan White Part A funds, the CEO is the grantee. In the Las Vegas TGA the CEO is the chair of the Clark County Commisssion.

  • The word “Grantee” means the person or organization that actually carries out Ryan White Part A tasks, whether that is the CEO, the public health department, or another agency that reports to the CEO.
  • In the Las Vegas TGA the designated Grantee is Clark County Social Service.
  • The Grantee has specific duties covering the areas of support, preparation, assessment, development and collaboration.
