The G3Wire- April 14, 2022

Thursday morning, Governor Sisolak officially launched the Home Means Nevada Initiative. The Governor was joined by Adrianne Todman, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development Deputy Secretary, Congresswoman Dina Titus, Congresswoman Susie Lee, Congressman Steven Horsford, Nevada State Senator Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro and Nevada State Assembly Speaker Pro Tem Steve Yeager, along with other local leaders and officials for the launch.

Announced in the Governor’s State of the State speech earlier this year, the $500 million program represents the largest single investment in affordable housing in State history and complements other State and local investments, including Nevada Housing Division (NHD) recently earmarked $300.7 million – or 87% – of Nevada’s 2021 tax-exempt bonding authority has been set aside for development of affordable housing projects throughout the state.

State lawmakers recently approved the $250 million in federal funds representing half of the money the State plans to put toward the “Home Means Nevada” housing initiative put forward by Governor Sisolak.
