Little Nightjar has a very large geographic range, and its population trend is believed to be stable; consequently its IUCN Red List conservation status is assessed as Least Concern (BirdLife International 2014).

Sick (1993) considered Little Nightjar to be "abundant" in Brazil.

Effects of human activity on populations

Little Nightjar is probably little affected by human activity, and can occupy some non-native habitats, such as eucalyptus groves (see Habitat).
