Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8)

Attention Housing Choice Voucher participants: If you are experiencing a loss or reduction in employment income lasting more than seven (7) consecutive days, you are able to request an adjustment to your portion of rent. If your family is experiencing a loss or a reduction in employment income please report this change to NRHA by submitting a request in writing (via email to info@nvrural.org or via mail to 3695 Desatoya Dr., Carson City, NV 89701) as soon as possible so we can ensure that your rent is adjusted and affordable based on your family’s current circumstances.

The Nevada Rural Housing Authority provides rental assistance to low-income households, the disabled, elderly, and veterans through the federally funded Housing Choice Voucher Program, also known as the Section 8 Program. Our HCV Program increases affordable housing choices for low-income households by allowing families, elderly, and disabled persons to choose privately owned rental housing. Under Section 8, private landlords can rent apartments and homes at lower rates to qualified, low-income tenants. Depending on your income, you may be eligible for assistance with your rent payments.

If you or anyone in your household is a person with disabilities, and you require an accommodation in order to fully utilize our programs, please contact NRHA Section 504 Coordinator Mishon Hurst at 775-886-7911.
