Landlord Information for the CARES Housing Assistance Program

CARES Housing Assistance Program funds are specific to the payment of rent and security deposits. NRHA is administering funds for this program in the following counties: Carson City, Churchill, Douglas, Elko, Esmeralda, Eureka, Humboldt, Lander, Lincoln, Lyon, Mineral, Nye, Pershing, Storey and White Pine. Please visit the program’s additional administrators for information about the Washoe and Clark County jurisdictions.

Payments for services are made directly to a landlord.

Landlords who are already entered into our system do not need to resubmit the below documentation.
