Small business owners in Clark County who have lost money because of the ongoing pandemic may qualify for the county’s Small Business Rental Assistance program, which provides up to $10,000 to cover past-due rent, and/or the Small Business Protective Retrofit Grant, which will reimburse businesses up to $5,000 for costs such as purchasing personal protective equipment for employees and installing no-touch doors and walk-up windows.

Information about the programs and the applications are online here.

Applications must be submitted online.


Qualified applicants will be in unincorporated Clark county, have a Clark County business license, and 20 or fewer employees. Grant awards could be made in late August.


The County has partnered with the Nevada Small Business Development Center at UNLV to provide assistance to business owners who may need help with the application process.
