Staff will follow-up with those who registered to assess needs and provide updates. Available resources include victim advocacy, support, legal assistance, counseling, spiritual care referrals, or help to apply for funding. Some may be eligible for funds from then Nevada Victims of Crime Program. Anyone who was injured or present during the shooting must apply for assistance through the Nevada Victims of Crime Program by Oct. 1, 2018.
