Approximately $550,000 in financial assistance for rent and utilities is going out to 80 additional households each week
VANCOUVER – Clark County has implemented and currently operates eviction prevention rent assistance programs to assist people who are low-income impacted by the pandemic. These programs have provided an unprecedented $53 million in financial assistance to 6,416 households, paying for 57,081 months of rent and utilities since August 2020. Approximately $550,000 in financial assistance for rent and utilities is going out to 80 additional households each week.
Referrals for 1,000 additional households to receive rent assistance including arrears will open on Wednesday, July 20, at noon. Links and instructions to apply are below. Note: the links will not be live until noon on July 20 and will close once all available referrals have been received.
Households may only receive assistance one time. Households that have already received assistance are not eligible for additional assistance. This program helps households stay in their existing housing; funds cannot be used to move into a new housing unit.
Anyone who has previously applied for assistance is asked to please not apply again as this delays the processing of applications.
All applicants will receive a submission confirmation email. Housing providers are working to assist all households that are currently on the waitlist. Tenants must be deemed eligible in order for assistance to be provided.
