Nevada Housing Division

The Nevada Housing Division (NHD), a division of the Department of Business and Industry, was created by the Nevada Legislature in 1975 to solve a very real problem: a shortage of safe and decent housing for individuals and families of low and moderate income. We pride ourselves on helping revitalize neighborhoods and strengthen communities throughout the state.
