LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Clark County commissioners on Tuesday approved $20 million in federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act funding for a housing assistance program.
The $20 million will fund a second round of housing assistance. The county first announced in July $50 million in funding for the program. The program paused in August after receiving more than 25,000 applications.
Clark County said it expects to help more than 14,000 households with the program.
Applicants who are approved will be able to receive assistance with rent, mortgage, utility bills, deposits and emergency lodging.
The county expects to begin accepting applications for this program at the end of September. Details about eligibility and how to apply can be found at HelpHopeHome.org.
