The Nevada Housing Division (NHD) has launched a new website,, to showcase Home Is Possible™ (HIP) programs that offer homebuyer grants to low and middle-income Nevadans. NHD Administrator CJ Manthe states the Home is Possible, Home is Possible for Heroes and Mortgage Credit Certificate programs are vital to helping Nevadans realize their dreams of homeownership.

“So far HIP programs have helped more than 7,000 Nevadans get into homes of their own,” said Manthe. “It is our hope this website will serve as a one-stop shop for homebuyers, REALTORS® and lenders looking to get more information and take advantage of these great programs.”

To increase awareness about the new website, NHD has created a competition for homebuyers called the HIP Gold Games. Now through September 9, Nevadans who complete the various milestones of homeownership outlined on the website will become more knowledgeable on the home-buying process, while also becoming eligible to win prizes.

HIP Gold Games challenges are: Find a Lender, Find a Realtor, Complete Homebuyer Education Course, Get a Home Loan Approved, Share Homebuying Experience and Share a Photo of the Keys to Your New Home. The first Nevadan to complete all of the challenges will win Gold ($100 gift card), the second Silver ($75 gift card) and the third Bronze ($50 gift card). A separate prize will be awarded to the HIP Gold Games follower who shares the most experiences on social media using the #HIPGold hashtag.
