The HIP For Teachers program was introduced in late 2016 to help Nevada communities recruit and retain teachers. “In addition to making Nevada one of the country’s most veteran-friendly states, we’re working with Governor Sandoval to make it a great place for teachers to live and work,” explained Housing Administrator CJ Manthe. “A big part of that is helping them get into a home of their own, which was the impetus for this program.”
HIP For Teachers offers Nevada’s K-12 teachers $10,000 in bonus money toward the purchase of a new home, and that money is forgivable if the teacher stays in the home for five years. It can be used for a down payment or closing costs, freeing up homeowner savings for other expenses.
