Nevada Housing Division Administrator Charles L. Horsey Retiring After 30 Years of Service

Carson City, NV - December 13, 2012

Long-time 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.


In 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.


“During 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.


The 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.”
