Home Is Possible (HIP) Lender FAQ


Yes! We've created a page on our site with marketing materials you can use. If you want to make your own materials, please review our guidelines first!


The manufactured unit must be a multi-width unit. No single-width homes are allowed and a minimum of at least 600 square feet gross living area is required.


The buyer may sell or refinance at any time.


There are no restrictions. However, the home must be their primary residence and they must occupy the home within 60 days of closing.


There is no recapture or prepayment penalty.


No. The borrower will sign one document, the gift letter, at closing. The Nevada Housing Division also provides a commitment letter. The lender is responsible for providing all funds to the borrower.


No, the borrower must use the HIP program, as the down payment is not a standalone product. (However, you may use the MCC program as a standalone product.)


While HIP cannot be used as construction financing, it can be used for the permanent financing. Wait to reserve funds once the house is complete and the date is within 45 days of closing.
