I know that this is an extremely difficult time for homeowners and renters across our state. The coronavirus pandemic has impacted the health and economic security of so many of our families. Many of you have had your lives upended by the coronavirus pandemic and are looking for information and resources to stay in your homes.
On June 25, the state of Nevada began gradually lifting the pause on evictions that Governor Sisolak ordered on March 29. This gradual lift only permits certain types of evictions before September 1, 2020, when the suspension lifts completely. To support Nevadans in need of housing assistance during this challenging time, Governor Sisolak has dedicated $30 million in CARES Act funding to rental housing assistance and $20 million in commercial rental assistance across the state of Nevada.
If you find yourself without income to pay your rent or mortgage, be sure to reach out to your landlord or lender immediately. There are government and nonprofit resources that can help Nevadans catch up on payments:

Always remember that my office is here to help you. If you have any questions, you can reach out to my office through my website or by calling one of my offices in Nevada or Washington, D.C. I want to ensure that renters and homeowners have a safe place to live and that property owners can stay afloat to provide that housing. In Washington, I’m fighting to provide more federal dollars for housing assistance to avoid an increase in homelessness. During this pandemic, we know that housing is health care.
