TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Happening this weekend, September 5 and 6 is a NeighborhoodLIFT event, to help moderate-income people buy a home.  Wells Fargo is partnering with Neighbor Works America and the Primavera Foundation to help provide down payment assistance grants and home buyer counseling to more that 250 home buyers in both Tucson and South Tucson.  

This NeighborhoodLIFT event is taking place at the Tucson Convention Center, exhibit halls B and C (260 S. Church Avenue), from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.   NeighborhoodLIFT is funded with $5.5 million from Wells Fargo, to provide grants of $15,000 to eligible home buyers. These home buyers can obtain their mortgage from either Wells Fargo or any other lender approved by the Primavera Foundation.  

According to a recent release - 'NeighborhoodLIFT program funds may be applied to loans with any approved lender and to 203k renovation loans to make improvements as part of a new mortgage purchase loan.'

Hundreds have already registered for this event, but walk-ins are also welcome, on a first come, first serve basis.

    A former member of President Trump’s Administration, Steve Bannon, was in Tucson on Saturday night to receive an award. But many Tucsonans stood in opposition to Bannon’s visit because of his views and ties to Breitbart News, a conservative network. Steve Bannon was the keynote speaker at the Brian Terry Foundation Courage Awards and Benefit Dinner at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort.
