There are new eligibility guidelines for rental assistance programs that provide aid to those facing eviction due to non-payment of rent in Clark County, Nevada. 

Remember that if you have received an eviction notice, you must respond to it ASAP or you can be evicted by default. The CARES Housing Assistance Program (CHAP) will process all applications submitted by 11:50 p.m. on January 22, 2023. Households submitting applications after that time must fall within one of the following groups to be considered for rental assistance:

  • The household has experienced a rent increase in the last 12 months, and
  • The household received an eviction notice for nonpayment of rent.

Temporary Change of Circumstance

  • If you have had a temporary change in circumstances that has caused you to fall one or two months behind on rent,
  • If the temporary circumstance has changed or will change so that you can pay rent in the future, and
  • The household received an eviction notice for nonpayment of rent.
