Downpayment Assistance Up to $15,000 for Minneapolis Homes

Prospective homeowners can qualify for up to $15,000 in down payment assistance for purchasing a home in Minneapolis as part of Wells Fargo's NeighborhoodLIFT SM event being held September 7 and 8 (10 am-7 pm) at the Minneapolis Convention Center.   These funds may be used in addition to Minneapolis Advantage homebuyer assistance and CityLiving mortgage assistance.
In an effort to promote sustainable homeownership and advance neighborhood stability in the two cities, Wells Fargo is joining with NeighborWorks America local affiliates, Neighborhood Housing Services of Minneapolis and Community Neighborhood Housing Services of St. Paul, to determine income eligibility and help qualified prospective homeowners reserve down payment assistance grants.  In addition, the agencies will provide homebuyer support programs to help consumers achieve successful, sustainable homeownership.
Prospective homebuyers can register until Wednesday, Sept. 5 and learn more about the NeighborhoodLIFT SM program at www.neighborhoodlift.org  or by calling 866-858-2151.  Pre-registration is encouraged, although walk-ins at the event are welcome.
