About Us

Introduction
The SNRHA, an Accredited Management Organization®, SNRHA an Accredited Management Organization®, was formed in January 2010 through the consolidation of the three housing authorities in the Las Vegas Valley. The consolidated SNRHA is the 32nd largest public housing authority in the country and the 6th largest PHA in HUD Region 9, which encompasses California, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii.

SNRHA has an annual budget of $152 million and has received approximately $20 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds. Further, the agency has received approximately $13 million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funds.

SNRHA currently owns and manages 23 public housing properties, 386 scattered site units (single-family homes) totaling 2,651 public housing units. A total of 5,396 residents are served under this program. Of the 23 public housing properties 20 are conventional public housing, six (6) designated senior developments, four (4) designated as elderly/disabled developments, and ten (10) are designated as family developments. The remaining three (3) properties are Mixed Finance public housing properties, one (1) designated senior development, and two (2) are designated as family developments.

SNRHA also administers over 11,000 Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8) that allow families to rent in the private market and receive a subsidy towards their rent. With this assistance, participants are able to pay approximately 30 percent of their annual adjusted income towards their rent, while the SNRHA pays the remainder. The SNRHA helps provide housing to approximately 28,841 participants under this program.

SNRHA owns and manages an additional 1,035 affordable housing units (non-subsidized) which includes two (2) mobile home parks, two (2) senior sites, four (4) family sites and 32 scattered site units (single-family homes) including 141 NSP single-family homes located in Clark County, Henderson and City of North Las Vegas. Additionally SNRHA manages 38 NSP single-family homes for the City of Las Vegas. The SNRHA helps provide housing to approximately 2,147 residents under this program.

SNRHA through its preservation efforts recently converted three (3) properties from Public Housing to Project Based Vouchers through the Rental Assistance and Demonstration Program (RAD) totaling 323 units, plus 8 HOME units serving a total of 881 residents under this program.

SNRHA has an extensive and honorable lineage as the successor to the Housing Authorities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Clark County. All of that expertise is now under one roof and we hope to serve our Southern Nevada residents and clients much more efficiently.
SNRHA is made-up of staff from diverse cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds. We believe diversity promotes awareness and understanding, and allows creativity and openness to change. The SNRHA recognizes and celebrates workplace diversity and believes it is an essential part of our organization in order to face the challenges of the future.
