The success of NIFA's Homeownership Program over the years is based in part on the partnership between NIFA and Nebraska real estate professionals. Real estate agents are a powerful voice and trusted source that homebuyers depend upon for guidance. NIFA values our relationship!
You can give your clients a better chance at homeownership by using NIFA's homebuyer programs. With our competitive interest rates, down payment assistance and special program for Nebraska's military, you may be able to qualify a borrower that otherwise would not have been able to purchase a home.
NIFA's programs are not just for first-time homebuyers. Some of our programs do not have a first-time homebuyer requirement and in some situations NIFA can waive the requirement. Previous homeowners who buy homes in targeted areas or veterans who qualify for the federal exemption are also eligible. There are other ways our programs can work for you and your clients. Borrowers may be able to purchase a home by investing as little as $1,000 of their own funds.
NIFA offers support for Nebraska Real Estate Agents. NIFA’s office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central Time. We encourage and welcome all questions.
In 2006 NIFA started recognizing our top real estate agents at our annual housing conference. We honor the top urban and the top rural NIFA agent for the previous year. This award is based on the highest number of NIFA transactions in the previous calendar year. Our previous winners can be viewed here.

NIFA wants to expand our partnership with Realtors in the state and offers two affordable housing continuing education opportunities.
Our 1-hour Broker continuing education course is provided upon request. This course is an overview of NIFA’s Homeownership Program. The course is instructed by a NIFA team member.
Our 6-hour session credits are offered every year at NIFA’s annual housing conference, Housing Innovation Marketplace. This event is held in early Spring at the LaVista Conference Center. The continuing education sessions are offered on the first day of the conference and cover a variety of current housing issues. Online registration begins every January.
