LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County says it expects around 15,000 applications for housing help through its CARES Housing Assistance Program, known as CHAP, to be approved.

So far, the county says 1,500 have been already.

On Tuesday, commissioners approved using $20 million in CARES Act funding to help those in the Las Vegas area and Clark County who are having trouble paying rent as a result of COVID-19.

Back in August, new applications for the county CHAP program were put on pause.

The county says it expects to have a revised application process up and running in about two weeks.

In the meantime, there are other programs available for anyone looking for assistance.
