Successful Habitat Homeownership
Nevada County Habitat strives to support success in homeownership by providing opportunities for our homeowners to learn about maintaining their home, securing their financial well being, and becoming more engaged in their communities.
What is the California Mortgage Relief Program?
The California Mortgage Relief Program uses federal Homeowner Assistance Funds to help homeowners get caught up on their housing payments. The program is absolutely free and the funds do not need to be repaid. Learn more and if you are eligible here.
Important Credit Score Information
