University of Nevada, Reno Extension, University Center for Economic Development, College of Agriculture, Biotechnology & Natural Resources, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Bureau of Land Management, USDA Rural Development and Nevada Association of Counties are sponsoring a statewide initiative: Nevada Economic Assessment Project.

This project is led by Extension Community Economic Specialists Buddy Borden and Tom Harris, also with the University's Center for Economic Development. The project focuses on providing Nevada’s counties, state and federal agencies, and their partners with quantitative and qualitative baseline data and analyses to better understand the counties’ demographic, social, economic, fiscal, and environmental characteristics, trends, and impacts. The data can be used for land use and project planning, grant writing, and overall policy assessment.

The long-term goal is to develop and maintain an extensive data repository and set of analytical tools that are meaningful, consistent, and verifiable.
