Apply For Section 8 at Clark County Housing Authority Today

You have a right to apply for any Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) provided by the Clark County Housing Authority (SNRHA) as long as you meet the eligibility criteria. Once you find an opening on the SNRHA website, you can submit your application online, by mail, or do it from their offices.

Most people do not have a problem filling out the form. The challenge is knowing what to write to increase your chances of qualifying for the voucher program.

So, you need an affordable and experienced consultant like DoNotPay to fill out the form for you. The firm works for people like you; hence it knows the ins and outs of the HCV program.

Who Is Eligible for Section 8 Housing?

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is the overseer and key sponsor of the section 8 HCV program. The HCV helps low-income earners, the physically challenged, and the elderly afford the rent for decent houses. So, how do you know if you are eligible for the package, especially in Clark County?

Essential RequirementsIncome Requirements
You must either be a U.S. Citizen or a non-citizen with an authentic immigration status specified by HUD.The SNRHA gives most of its vouchers to individuals or families whose income is less than 30% of the AMI (Area Meridian Income). You can also apply if yours is more than 30% but less than 50%.

So, if you live outside Clark County, do not use the AMI for the area you live in now. Instead, consider the AMI for Clark County

Be at least 18 years old.They do not consider income from anyone below 18 years
Your current marital status doesn't matter. You could also be with or without children.The amount of money the adults in your house get before taxes is what they use to calculate your AMI

  • You have a history of drug and substance abuse or have served time for drugs and/or violence.
  • You are a sex offender or felon.

How to Apply for Section 8 Housing in Clark County by Yourself

First, before you apply, you must look for an open waiting list either by visiting SNRHA offices or checking their website and local newspapers.

  1. Visit the SNRHA rent café portal.
  2. The first form is to prequalify you for the government housing program.
  3. Once you succeed, Clark County Housing Authority will send you a confirmation letter to notify you that you're now on the waitlist. You might wait 12-18 months to get on the list.
  4. When your name gets to the top of the list, you will receive another letter inviting you to SNRHA offices to be certified as eligible.
  5. There is a very high demand for low-income houses, therefore, if you wait for too long (60-90 days after qualifying) to get a place, SNRHA will call you to re-verify the information you supplied during the application process.
