How To Become A Lender

We know what you're thinking: Sign me up! Here's how.

In order to help homebuyers secure downpayment assistance and mortgage savings from the Nevada Housing Division, lenders must first be qualified and trained. It's our way of making darn sure everything runs smoothly.

Home Is Possible

The first step in becoming a qualified lender is to contact U. S. Bank which is the Master Servicer for the program. All lenders must establish a direct relationship with U. S Bank to participate in a HFA program. All lenders must also be licensed and have a physical presence in the State of Nevada. Please contact U. S. Bank Lender Management to request a Lender Application Package by calling 800-562-5165.

Once approved with U. S. Bank, we will forward the Nevada Housing Division Lender Agreement and set-up program training for your staff.

After this it would probably be nice to know how the system works! eHousingPlus provides oh-so-convenient (and yes, mandatory) program training online 24/7. It's Nevada after all—that's how we roll. There's also a 30-minute lender training available weekly, which is specifically designed to help lenders sail through the process of reserving funds, completing underwriter certifications and even clearing exceptions.

Once you've completed your training, you'll receive an email with easy-to-follow directions on how to apply for user credentials so you can navigate the lender portal. The directions are designed for those lenders who are new to NHD's programs as well as those expanding the programs they can offer.

Thanks in advance for getting the ball rolling.
