Gamblers Assistance Program
State Committee on Problem Gambling

Recent legislation (LB6) was passed into law that transfers the Gamblers Assistance Program (GAP) from administration under DHHS to an independent Commission located within the Department of Revenue effective July 1, 2013. This law mandates the transition of authority for the administration of the publicly funded problem gambling service system in Nebraska and also includes the training program and certification of problem gambling counselors. For interim questions regarding GAP, please leave a message with the Nebraska Department of Revenue at 1-877-564-1315 or 402-471-5937 after July 1, 2013.


 

This is a 12 member board set up by the legislature to provide recommendations to the Division on problem gambling services. The board meets quarterly at public meetings. Below you will find the board members names, and can read the agendas and minutes from meetings for the last several years.
