1 The amount of down payment assistance varies by market. This down payment assistance program is available for households earning 120% or less of the area’s median income, adjusted for household size, although specific loan products have lower income limits. CityLIFT and NeighborhoodLIFT funds cannot be used to purchase bank-owned properties being managed by Wells Fargo Premier Asset Services.

The NeighborhoodLIFT program is a collaborative program of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., Wells Fargo Foundation, and NeighborWorks America, an independent nonprofit organization. The CityLIFT program is designed to provide down payment assistance and homebuyer education programs in areas most impacted by the financial crisis. The program was developed in response to the 2012 settlement with the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, and is a collaboration between Wells Fargo Bank N.A. and NeighborWorks America, an independent nonprofit organization.

Although Wells Fargo is the sponsor of the CityLIFT and NeighborhoodLIFT programs, you may seek financing for the remaining balance of the home purchase from any qualified lender who accepts the CityLIFT or NeighborhoodLIFT down payment assistance program.

Wells Fargo team members are not eligible to participate in the CityLIFT and NeighborhoodLIFT programs. This limitation also applies to a team member’s immediate family, including spouses and dependent children, where the team member would have beneficial ownership of the property that was the subject of the DAP.
