CARES Rental Assistance in Rural Nevada

Funding for the CARES Housing Assistance Program was provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act passed by Congress – each state received funding. The State of Nevada identified rental assistance as a priority, and allocated $30 million for this purpose. The Nevada Rural Housing Authority was designated by the State of Nevada Housing Division to administer the program to assist impacted renters in rural Nevada; $5 million is in available funds through December 31, 2020.
