Nevada Housing Division is partnering with the Governor's Office on Energy to provide the Home Energy Retrofit Opportunities for Seniors (HEROS) program.  The program assists with reducing energy costs for Nevada seniors by improving the energy efficiency of their home.  The program is provided at no cost to income qualified seniors who own their own home.

Nevada Housing Division administers the HEROS program through a network of non-profit Service Provider agencies throughout the State of Nevada.  An energy assessment is conducted at the participating senior's home in order to develop a scope of work. Each Service Provider agency retains local contractors with trained crews who install various energy conservation measures.

Each home may receive up to $6,000 in energy saving measures.
