A FREE, LEGITIMATE HOUSING RESOURCE
Home Again: Nevada Homeowner Relief Program is a free public service from the Office of the Nevada Attorney General that seeks to educate Nevada residents on the housing resources that may or may not be available to them. A state-wide program, Home Again encourages residents to call the hotline (1-855-457-4638) and speak to a representative about their housing situation.
The Home Again program is designed for:
- Those planning to buy their first home
- Those seeking credit restoration
- Those looking to modify their home loan
The Home Again program may also assist with first time homebuyer education and can see if you are eligible for down payment assistance. The no-fee service is available for all Nevadans simply by calling toll free 1-855-HLP-4-NEV (1-855-457-4638). The call center is open 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., Monday – Friday. You may also submit your request via the ‘Contact’ form on our website. Asistencia está disponible en español.
National Mortgage Settlement
The program originates from an unprecedented multi-state settlement, in which Nevada joined 48 states in a $25 billion federal-state settlement with the nation’s five largest mortgage services over foreclosure abuses and unacceptable nationwide mortgage servicing practices. These banks include Bank of America, Citi, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Ally (GMAC).
This program is a partnership between the Office of the Nevada Attorney General, Financial Guidance Center, Nevada Legal Services and Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada. Participating U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approved agencies in the program include: Financial Guidance Center, Nevada Legal Services, Housing for Nevada, Community Services of Nevada, Neighborhood Housing Services, Novadebt, Springboard and Chicanos Por La Causa.
Beware of Scams
Borrowers do not need to pay anyone for access to assistance. Attorney General Masto warns all homeowners to be aware of mortgage-related scams. Do not provide personal information or pay money to anyone who calls or emails you claiming that they are providing mortgage-related assistance. If you believe that someone is conducting a mortgage-related scam, contact the Attorney General’s Hotline at 702-486-3132 to receive instructions on how to submit a written complaint.
