The Clark County Community Action Program distributes funds for emergency needs, basic and essential services, and programs that work to improve self-sufficiency. The 2015 Homeless Action Plan was approved by County Board of Councilors on May 26, 2015.
Please call 2-1-1 or visit 211info.org if you are in need of assistance.
The Community Action Program allocates more than $2 million annually to community nonprofit organizations to provide an array of services to Clark County individuals and families who are homeless and low-income. Examples of funded services include emergency shelter, energy assistance, homeless prevention through rent or mortgage assistance and case management, and access to services and programs for food, employment, and legal assistance for non-criminal matters.
Clark County does not provide direct rental assistance. If you are in need of assistance, contact the Housing Solutions Center hotline at (360) 695-9677.
