Ryan White/HIV Impact Project
Nevada Legal Services’ Ryan White/HIV Impact Project provides free civil legal services and legal education for people enrolled in Ryan White Part B or those living with HIV who reside in Nevada. Legal assistance provided by the project is designed to address the health-harming legal needs of people living with HIV/AIDS to enable them to focus on staying well. U.S. citizenship, LPR status or another qualifying immigration status is required to open a case. We will also inquire about Ryan White enrollment during intake. Feel free to contact us with questions.
