THURSDAY AT 9 AM: Governor Sisolak, federal, local partners to formally launch ‘Home Means Nevada’ initiative in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV - April 08, 2022

Governor Sisolak will be joined by federal, state and local partners on Thursday, April 14 at 9 a.m. to formally launch the “Home Means Nevada” housing initiative.

The Governor will be joined by Adrianne Todman, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development Deputy Secretary, Congresswoman Dina Titus, Congresswoman Susie Lee, 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.

The plan is aimed at helping to lower the cost of housing, help people stay in their homes, and create good-paying jobs. The plan will boost housing construction and homeownership opportunities. It will help seniors retrofit their homes, to lower their costs, improve their property, and stay where they want to be.

Media are asked to RSVP to press@gov.nv.gov no later than Wednesday at noon for additional details as to the timing, location and parking for the event.
