the Nevada Housing Division
The Nevada Housing Division was created by the Nevada Legislature in
1975, when it was recognized that a shortage of safe, decent, and sanitary
housing existed throughout the State for low- and moderate-income Nevadans.
Their mission is to improve quality of life by providing affordable housing
opportunities. For more information visit www.housing.nv.gov.
