Home Is Possible Program

Nevada down payment assistance programs - Home is Possible

Get bonus money. Buy a house. Celebrate. In a nutshell, that’s how the Home Is Possible program works.

Established by the state of Nevada in 2014, Home Is Possible helps homebuyers just like you to get up to 5% of the home loan value. That's thousands of dollars for a one-time fee of just $755 (paid at closing). When you qualify, you can use that money for your down payment or closing costs.
