CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada is getting a $2.9 million federal grant to support children whose parents use methamphetamine.
Nevada Health and Human Services Director Mike Willden said Wednesday the grant will be used over five years to increase access to drug abuse treatment and improve child welfare services.

State child services administrator Amber Howell says meth use continues to be a huge problem in Nevada, and it directly impacts children.

She says the money will help Nevada continue aggressive efforts to treat moms who are addicted to drugs.
