The Clark County Community Action Program is a key distributor of funds for emergency needs, basic and essential services, and programs that work to improve self-sufficiency. Program dollars come from local Deed Recording fees (2060, 2163, 1359), the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG), local dollars, the Consolidated Homeless Grant (CHG), the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), and the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).
Please call 2-1-1 or visit 211.info.org if you are in need of assistance.
The Community Action Program allocates more than $2 million annually to community nonprofit organizations to provide an array of services to homeless and low-income individuals and families in Clark County. Examples of funded services include emergency shelter, energy assistance, homeless prevention through rent or mortgage assistance and case management, access to services, and programs for food, employment and/or legal assistance for non-criminal matters.
