Responding to the needs of Nevadans has always been my top priority. As your United States Senator, I may be able to help you interact with various federal agencies. My office can provide for a wide range of constituent services. Whether you are planning a trip to our Nation’s Capitol, considering applying to a service academy, or are in need of assistance when dealing with various federal agencies, my office stands ready to assist you.

Academy Nominations

I take great pride in the opportunity to nominate young men and women as candidates to the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and West Point. Nominations are not needed to go the U.S. Coast Guard Academy; however, my academy coordinators would be happy to assist you with any information you may need.

Business Resources

During my time in Congress, I have been a strong supporter of small businesses because they play a vital role in the economy by spurring innovation, job creation, and competition. I will continue to support small businesses because the economic recovery of Nevada and our nation depends on their success. I encourage you to utilize the resources on this page and wish you the best of luck in your ventures.

Casework

As a United States Senator, one of my most important responsibilities is to help Nevadans with questions or concerns involving federal agencies. Having a problem with the federal government can be very frustrating. However, I have qualified caseworkers in my state offices to assist you in these situations and provide guidance and answers.

Nevada 2-1-1

2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember telephone number that connects Nevada callers to free information about critical health and human services available in their community. Every hour of every day, someone in the Nevada needs essential services – from finding an after-school program to securing adequate care for a child or an aging parent. Faced with a dramatic increase in the number of agencies and help-lines, people often don’t know where to turn. Nevada 2-1-1 helps people find the essential services they need. Launched in February 2006 and led by State of Nevada, United Way of Southern Nevada, United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra, Crisis Call Center, and HELP of Southern Nevada, Nevada 2-1-1 service is currently available seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day.

Retiree Benefits & Assistance Resource Guide

I believe it is helpful for all retired Nevadans to know about the federal government programs and benefits to which they are entitled. This is why my office has created a Retiree Benefits and Assistance Resource Guide, which will provide you key information about important federal, state, and community-based programs. While this Guide may not answer all your questions, it should serve as a directory to further assistance. Click here to download a copy of the Guide, or to find out how your organization can be included in this helpful resource.

Senatorial Recognition
