The CityLIFT program is a collaborative effort between Wells Fargo, local nonprofits and NeighborWorks America. It includes down-payment assistance grants, and home-buyer program support in 2012, along with a five-year home mortgage purchase lending goal focused on supporting efforts to stabilize housing markets with neighborhoods that have been deeply affected by foreclosures. CityLift held an event for the metro area on October 5 and October 6 at the Walter E Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The event was very successful, and provided hundreds of residents on the path to sustainable homeownership in Washington, D.C. and Prince George’s County. Key highlights of the event included 1354 appointments filled, where home ownership opportunities were explored and $7 million provided in down payment assistance in Washington, DC/Prince George’s County with $20,000 in individual grants.
