Clark County will accept 400 referrals for its eviction prevention rent assistance program at noon today. The programs provide rental help to low-income individuals impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Households are allowed to receive assistance one time. Anyone who has received assistance within the past few months is not eligible for additional assistance. Also, anyone who has previously applied for assistance should not apply again. Housing providers are working to assist all households currently on the waitlist.
