Nevada First Time Home Buyer Grants

Nevada Programs or Grants for Home Buying

The State of Nevada does not offer a Nevada first time home buyer grant program for some its residents. But it has a program that can before a grant.

This cool program helps some residents with the down payment and closing costs. It is called the "Home is Possible Program." It's assistance is up to 5% of the loan's value toward your down payment and closing costs.

There are some requirements and restrictions that must be met so you will want to investigate what those are. They also have some income limitations and location restrictions.

The program is actually a loan, but if you stay in the home for three years, then the loan can be forgiven! See how it can become a grant. There is a fee associated with this program you must meet.

A couple other programs is the "Home is Possible for Heroes" and "Home is Possible for Teachers." One is for military personnel and the other is for teachers. The teachers one has $7,500 in what they call bonus money to help with the down payment and closing costs. Both of these programs have a fee associated with them.

Another program you will want to investigate is the "Mortgage Credit Certificate Program (MCC)." This is a federal tax credit that can be up to 20% of the interest paid on the loan. Every savings counts!

All these programs have limitations and restrictions you will have to consider to qualify. 

You will have to go to their website to see if you are eligible.

Federal Home Mortgage Grants

However, the good news is that the federal government does offer grant assistance for first time home buyers in Nevada. This program is maintained by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development and is called the Homes and Communities program.

Their website contains useful information and applications. The website for the grant program maintained by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development can be visited by using this link, HUD Grant Information.

Additional Home Buying Grants

Another website I would recommend that you view is Visit the Government Grants. This website offers a list of all federal government grant programs. It would be a good idea to take some time and browse through this site to see what it offers and the qualifications for application.

All this applying and qualifying takes time. So allow yourself plenty of time to get through the process. While you are waiting to here, why not start a little savings program.

Why do I suggest this? You do want to buy a home right? What do you do if you don't qualify for a grant? By saving some money now, if you don't get a grant, you may have enough money saved to investigate the low down payment programs like FHA.

Remember, you want a lender who works with any of these Nevada first time home buyer grants. Even if you qualify for a grant, you still have to qualify for a home loan.

If you need help estimating your mortgage closing costs, check out this FREE closing costs calculator by clicking here.

Perhaps a grant is not available in your state. Or you do not qualify for one. Don't get discouraged. If you still want to save money, check out this page that discusses the zero down payment program.

Otherwise, you may want to look at programs that have low down payment requirements
