Welcome Home Community Housing Fund Projects

In Spring of 2022, the Welcome Home Program and Clark County’s Community Housing Fund (CHF) were created to address the urgent need for housing for low-income residents in Southern Nevada, including families, seniors, and those who are employed but unable to find affordable housing. In September the Board of County Commissioners approved CHF funding of nearly $120 million for 30 housing developments across our community, both new construction and rehab, to ensure that Clark County residents have safe, modern, and most importantly, affordable options to call home. These initial Welcome Home funds were the first of their kind provided by a local government in Nevada and will help build or maintain approximately 3,000 units of low-income rental housing. The funds were provided to projects that needed gap financing to supplement Low-Income Housing Tax Credits and other financing sources.
In 2023 Clark County will continue its investment in affordable housing and offer TWO Welcome Home funding rounds. The first will be for approximately $20 million and will be dedicated to funding permanent supportive housing projects in Southern Nevada – this funding round will include nearly $10 million in federal HOME-ARP funding combined with other County funds. The second Welcome Home round for 2023 will be for $50 million in CHF funds for permanent affordable rental housing. Further information about these funding opportunities can be found below.
Additional future Welcome Home programs include a Community Land Trust for affordable homeownership, continued annual funding rounds, and opportunities for affordable housing development on county-owned and BLM land.Current Welcome Home Initiatives

The County is in the process of creating the Welcome Home Community Land Trust. The Community Land Trust (CLT) will provide homeownership opportunities for low to moderate income first-time homebuyers in Clark County. An RFP is currently open for the developer of the first subdivision of 30 CLT homes. The County expects to open applications for homebuyers in 2024 and 2025.
