Housing authority funding down another year as officials brace for further cuts

In North Las Vegas, HUD has appropriated a $23,557 grant to Nevada Partners, a nonprofit organization that administers the Culinary and Bartenders Housing Partnership Fund for gaming industry employees. Jodi Mobley, Nevada Partners director of housing programs, said more than 1,050 Southern Nevada residents have purchased their first homes through the fund since it was established in 2008.

Mobley said the federal grants help fund housing counseling and education services for people who are not Culinary and Bartenders Union participants. She said Nevada Partners has only recently started receiving federal grant money to supplement funding, and these dollars will go toward educating clients about homeownership, making them aware of down payment options and other homebuying details.
