The Nevada Housing Division offers the Home is Possible for Heroes program as a way to encourage and support homeownership for veterans. While this program can only be used with government issued loans, not conventional financing, it is a wonderful opportunity for those who have served our country to make aspirations of homeownership a reality.
The Home is Possible for Heroes Program offers Nevada veterans a low-interest, that is, below market value, loan to be used towards the purchase of a home. This is a way to honor those who have served but also to improve life for all Nevada residents by increasing homeownership state wide. If you are a veteran, are actively serving in the armed forces, or are a surviving spouse, this program is designed to benefit you.
