Nevada Housing Division administrator Charles L. Horsey, III this week informed
the Director of Business and Industry, Bruce Breslow of his retirement. His last day will be January 3, 2013.
That date marks 30 years of State service in which Mr. Horsey has been a strong
fixture at the self-funded Nevada Housing Division within the Department of
Business and Industry.
1983, Governor Richard Bryan appointed Mr. Horsey Deputy Director of the State
Department of Commerce where he served until his promotion to Administrator of
the Nevada Housing Division in 1986. The
Division was established in 1975 with a legislative mandate to provide safe,
decent, and affordable housing for low- to moderate-income Nevadans. During Horsey’s administration, the Division
has made more than $2 billion in loans for qualifying families. In addition to loans for providing mortgages
to serve the single family program, the Division has funded over 30,000 units
of affordable apartment units for families, seniors, and special-needs housing.
my tenure with the Housing Division, I am most proud of playing an instrumental
role in growing by leaps and bounds, housing programs for seniors, many of which
are on fixed incomes,” says Horsey. “The Housing
Division has become the leader in the State for providing senior
apartments.” According to the Division’s ‘Apartment Facts Study’, 90%
of the State’s affordable senior housing development has received financial
support from the Nevada Housing Division.
Governor and I are grateful for Mr. Horsey’s 30 years of dedication and service
to the State of Nevada,” said
Business and Industry Director Bruce Breslow. “His commitment to the
mission of the Housing Division has benefitted the many communities and
residents of our State.”
