The push for affordable housing in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – For many people, finding housing in Las Vegas is a struggle. But, a new affordable housing project may ease some of that burden.

Construction is set to start in January on one of the largest affordable housing projects in Nevada, which will cost $94.5 million.

“I’ve looked in different areas of the city and they all seem to be going up,” said resident Mirla Pastor. ... Read More
