The Nevada County Rental Assistance Program provides financial assistance in the form of direct payments to landlords, lenders, or utility providers. This program is specifically designed to aid COVID-19 affected households at or below 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) as adjusted for household size. Please see the chart below for income limits for this program and to see if you might be eligible.
Applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis with priority given to those that are at-risk of homelessness. Applications may be submitted electronically using the link below or submitted in person at 950 Maidu Avenue.
Applications will be processed and applicants selected for the program will be contacted to provide any additional information necessary. If awarded rental, mortgage, or utility assistance, payments will be made directly to the landlord, lender, or utility provider.
