What is CHAP?
The CARES Housing Assistance Program (CHAP) provides assistance for Clark County residents who are in severe financial hardship or have no income or resources to rent housing or utilities due to the COVID-19 crisis or response to that emergency.
Important Information about CHAP:
The amount of assistance will depend on whether CARES Act grant funding is available and the individual household assessment. Applications will continue to be accepted until all funds run out.
