LIFT Program Helps Homebuyers With Downpayment Assistance

SACRAMENTO – Wells Fargo’s special two-day, innovative homebuyer event is scheduled to be held Thursday and Friday, Nov. 16 and 17 at the Sacramento Community Convention Center.

Prospective homebuyers may qualify for $15,000 in down payment assistance and/or home and renovation financing grants, providing that the household earning is 120 percent or less of the median income.

At the event, interested parties or individuals can find out they qualify for down payment assistance program and reserve funds for 60 days even if a property is not found.
