WASHINGTON, DC – Last week, U.S. Senators Jacky Rosen (D-NV) and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) announced that Nevada is set to receive more than $48 million in grant funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to increase access to affordable housing in Northern and Southern Nevada.

Senators Rosen and Cortez Masto have been actively working at the federal level to lower housing costs and increase the availability of affordable housing for Nevadans. Senator Rosen, joined by Senator Cortez Masto, led the efforts to secure $166 million in the bipartisan government funding bill for NeighborWorks to increase the availability of affordable housing. Both Nevada senators also secured $1 million in Community Project Funding for affordable housing and new business developments in Clark County. They have co-sponsored legislation that would create a bipartisan task force to better understand and address the affordable housing crisis.
