Applications for most Housing Programs may be filled out at our Admissions office at 5390 E Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, Nevada 89122. Applications are accepted Monday – Thursday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please ensure that you print all three documents for a complete application which are as follows: 1) the Pre-Application, 2) Coversheet(s), and 3) the HUD Form 92006. Please note that you'll have to print a Pre-Application and HUD Form 92006 for each Coversheet that you are submitting.
You may print out the Pre-Application form, Coversheet(s), and the HUD Form 92006, but you will have to submit it in person. Mail-ins will be accepted for those out of state or Elderly/Disabled applicants only. Please ensure all areas of the application are complete. Incomplete applications (including failure to sign and/or provide social security numbers for all household members and ensure all areas of the application are completed) will not be accepted. If mailed in, they will be returned for completion. (Download the Application Process Brochure for complete information on the admission process)
Applicants are placed on a wait list(s) according to the date and time of receiving the application. Bedroom size for which the family qualifies and local preferences for which they may be eligible will impact wait list placement. All applications are time/date-stamped when received. The waitlist number is NOT a firm number as the waitlist (s) are resorted several times a week as new applications are received and families are pulled for verification of program eligibility when their name reaches the top of the wait list for which they applied. SNRHA’s preference points are included in the pre-application for your review. Please ensure you notify our agency in writing of all changes in income, family composition and change of addresses within 10 calendar days of the change. No changes are accepted over the phone. If SNRHA sends you correspondence that is returned due to incorrect addresses, or if you have moved and failed to provide our agency with a written updated address, your application will be withdrawn. The estimated wait list time for Public Housing is 12 to 18 months. The estimated wait list time for Housing Choice Vouchers, formerly called Section 8 is approximately 12 to 36 months. Failure to respond to any request for information or attending scheduled meetings will also result in withdrawal of your application.
Applicants may call (702) 451-8041 or our TDD number for the hearing impaired at (702) 387-1898, for further information or assistance in completing your application. Applicants may also call our automated phone inquiry system for wait list status information at (866) 569-6304.
