Clark County Small Business Rental Assistance

During recent emergency orders put in place by Nevada Governor, Steve Sisolak, a number of businesses were forced to close or limit operations.  These restrictions and closures made it difficult for businesses to generate the revenue needed to cover existing obligations.  Many tenants and landlords worked together to outline rent deferral plans, but deferments still leave a debt obligation which may be difficult for small businesses to overcome during these challenging times.

Clark County has developed a commercial rental assistance program to help tenants stay in place and help landlords keep tenants.  Commercial tenants, in conjunction with their landlords, operating within Unincorporated Clark County now have access to grant dollars to cover up to $10,000 in back rent.
