The Henderson City Council on Tuesday agreed to let the nonprofit HopeLink of Southern Nevada use the Nevada’s Low Income Housing Trust Fund.
The $50,000 fund will go toward the Tenant-Based Rental Assistance program, which provides affordable housing to prevent families at or below 60 percent of an area’s median income level from becoming homeless.
The program is expected to serve about 10 households for up to 12 months. Clients will be placed on a waiting list by application date and time; preference will go to domestic violence victims and the physically disabled.
