How To Become A Lender

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

In order to help homebuyers secure bonus money 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
U.S. Bank and eHousingPlus provide 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.

Mortgage Credit Certificate
MCC is the gift that keeps on giving—every tax season for the life of the loan. Become MCC-qualified and help your clients even more than you already do.

 

Here are the steps you need to take to unleash the power of MCC:

Send the completed lender agreement to: mholliday@housing.nv.gov or mail to:

Wait eagerly for an email that lists the dates and locations of upcoming training sessions.
