How Can You Help?
The National Low Income Housing Coalition is providing this data as a public service. NLIHC will continue to update the database. The accuracy of the data is based on information provided by the programs' administrators and user submissions.
Administered by the Nevada Rural Housing Authority, the Rural Housing Authority Program provided $65,000 in FY12 in tenant based rental assistance and security deposits for elderly people and families with a member with a disability who are on federal Section 8 voucher waiting lists. Rental assistance is provided as a bridge until recipients are able to receive a federal Section 8 voucher. In FY12, 74 households received assistance with security deposits and 77 households received rental assistance.
Funding for this program comes from the State Housing Trust Fund. Each year, about $100,000 is available for rental assistance through this program.
