County Commissioners approved nearly $120 million to support the development of more than 3,100 homes for low-income families and seniors across the Las Vegas Valley at is Sept. 6, 2022 Board of County Commissioners meeting. These initial Welcome Home funds are the first of its kind by a local government in Nevada. County Commissioners created the Welcome Home Community Housing Fund in April to address the urgent need for housing for low-income residents – families, seniors, and those who are employed, but unable to find affordable housing. The funding will support the construction of 2,139 new housing units, plus the rehabilitation of 967 existing units. The approved funding includes $12.5 million for 276 new apartments for seniors near the intersection of Decatur and Rome boulevards, $12 million to rehabilitate 237 units in the Desert Rose Apartments near North 28th Street and Charleston Boulevard, and $4 million for 176 new apartments for families at 4000 E. Desert Inn Road. To see all of the approved projects, visit the www.ClarkCountyNV.gov website.
