Rental Assistance for Tenants (RAFT) provides rental assistance to households impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eligible households must reside within the city of Las Vegas jurisdiction and have incomes at or below 80 percent Area Median Income (AMI). Confirm whether you live in city limits here.

Priority will be given to households whose incomes are at or below 50% AMI and/or unemployed for 90 days or more.

Financial assistance will be provided for up to 18 months to include rent and rent arrears, home energy costs and other expenses related to housing. Households that have already received financial assistance through the Clark County CARES Housing Assistance Program (CHAP) are able to apply; however, if the aggregated amount of financial assistance received through CHAP has exceeded 18 months, that household will not be eligible.
