BACKGROUND: 

Clark County, on behalf of the Department of Social Service (CCSS), requests that the Board of County Commissioners ratify the approval and the acceptance of 2021 Agreement to use American Rescue Plan Act Funds from the State of Nevada, Department of Business and Industry, Nevada Housing Division. 

Subtitle M of the Title IX of the American Rescue Plan Act appropriated $219,800,000,000 to provide funds to state, local, and Tribal governments to provide to mitigate the fiscal effects stemming from the public health emergency with respect to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).

The Governor of the State of Nevada has determined that providing assistance to eligible landlords affected by the COVID-19 pandemic is necessary to prevent the eviction of households struggling financially and has made funding available to Nevada Housing Division for the purpose of providing eligible landlords with financial assistance to prevent eviction of tenants.

Clark County, as a political subdivision of the State of Nevada will receive funds not to exceed the total of $4,000,000 to assist eligible landlords in Clark County with preventing eviction.  All funds must be expended or obligated between July 1, 2021, and September 30, 2025.  Funds may be used on the direct payment rental assistance to landlords on behalf of tenants who have defaulted in the payment of rent in Clark County.

Clark County agrees that any program costs, unless otherwise specified, exceeding the $4,000,000 provided by the Nevada Housing Division will be the responsibility of Clark County.  No amount of the funds may be used for administrative expenses.  Any ongoing program costs, such as maintenance and operations, shall be the sole responsibility of Clark County.

The item has been approved as to form by the District Attorney's office.
