First Time Home Buyer Programs

The Nevada Rural Housing and the Nevada Housing Division both offer programs for first time home buyers. These programs offer down payment assistance in the form of non-repayable grants. The grant monies can also be used for closing costs. In some cases, these programs can make a world of difference for a first time home buyer getting into a home or not.
