Nevada Public Radio "Give Voice" Technical Infrastructure Upgrade

Facility renovations and improvements to the production and broadcast technologies used by Nevada Public Radio.

Nevada Public Radio (NVPR) is requesting a $500,000 Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge Grant towards a critical $2M technical upgrade of the studio facilities and broadcast infrastructure that serves the state of Nevada. This once-in-20-year upgrade will secure the delivery of the humanities “at scale” with broadcast, online and published content that empowers people to respond to their world and engage with their community. NVPR has a 38-year history of combining renowned NPR programming with a deep commitment to creating original content. More than $500,000 is invested annually in content production that reflects the humanities in partnership with scholars. Additional partnerships reflect marketing and community engagement activities that amplify the work of scholars and humanities related institutions across the state of Nevada. Fundraising to match an NEH Challenge Grant is already under way through the “Give Voice” Major Gift Initiative.
