Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford announced $2 million in settlement funding for emergency rental assistance transferred to United Way of Southern Nevada and United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra. The funding is part of the previously announced settlement agreement with Wells Fargo. The transfer of the funding received approval from the Nevada State Legislature’s Interim Finance Committee this morning.

Those that enter the program will get four months rent, or $4,000 towards rent, whichever comes first.

The Henderson CARES Housing Assistance Program (or Henderson CHAP) serves residents of Henderson who have suffered substantial financial hardship and now lack sufficient income or resources available to pay their housing costs because of the COVID-19 emergency or the response to that emergency. The program allows for payment of rent, mortgage, and utilities arrears back to March 1, 2020, as well as utility deposits, security deposits and emergency lodging.

      I moved to Las Vegas a month ago with my four young kids to live with my brother until I work and save money to afford my kids and myself a stable place to stay. Once I found a job as a housekeeper now he is charging me rent babysitting etc. I can not afford to get a place to live if I am paying all of this money when I don’t have it. He told me last week he will give me one month to get out. I am begging anyone for help so we don’t become homeless, please

    Hello, How do I request a formal appeal for a denial of benefits from CHAP Clark County Rental Assistance Program? They do not offer any information on this and there is no free legal advice offered on this subject. I can’t even find where I can file a formal complaint. As I feel I was wrongfully denied assistance. I searched other states and they all have programs set up with all the information you need to file appeals and links for free legal assistance. Nevada’s or Clark County does not have they’re program set up to help you. I’m just not sure whether I file a complaint with the County, State, or US Treasury Department. Thank You.
