LIFT Programs

An initiative of NeighborWorks America and the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation

Since early 2012, NeighborWorks America has collaborated with the Wells Fargo Foundation and local nonprofit organizations on LIFT programs in 30 cities. Through NeighborhoodLIFT® and CityLIFT® , Wells Fargo has committed more than $200 million to support sustainable housing in cities affected by the economic downturn. The LIFT programs offer:

"This is a tremendous commitment by Wells Fargo to support homeowners and communities. This is the kind of public-private collaboration that can help communities tackle difficult challenges and enable families to realize their goal of sustainable homeownership."
- Chuck Wehrwein, acting CEO of NeighborWorks America

How it works

The Wells Fargo Foundation provides grants for down-payment assistance through NeighborWorks America to local NeighborWorks organizations and/or other nonprofits. At a two-day launch event in each city, potential homebuyers learn if they qualify for the down-payment assistance program. Also at the event, local nonprofits enroll homebuyers in required pre-purchase education and participants have the opportunity to tour available neighborhood properties.
