VANCOUVER – Clark County Community Services is seeking applications to maintain fiscal year 2023 emergency housing service capacity. As intended by the legislation, these funds will go to existing services and contracts, to maintain service levels that would otherwise drop due to funding that is expiring. There will be approximately $4,465,000 available in emergency housing funds for fiscal year 2024. Programs that Clark County has identified as having shortfalls will be prioritized. 

Allowable uses are restricted to emergency housing activities – street outreach, diversion, emergency shelter including hotel/motel leasing, sanctioned encampments, transitional housing, rapid re-housing, housing search and placement, and housing stability case management. The programs work within the framework of the Clark County Homeless Crisis Response System (HCRS) toward preventing and ending homelessness in Clark County. 

Applications and instructions will be available Monday, Sept. 18, 2023, online through Bonfire. Links to the applications will be located at To be added to the stakeholders list or for assistance or program information, contact Kayla Williams at

  • Full applications are due Friday, Sept. 29, 2023, through Bonfire.
