Down payment grants available for home buyers

If you are dreaming of buying a home, assistance from the Tucson NeighborhoodLIFT program might be just what you need. The program only has about 20 $15,000 grants remaining to provide mortgage down payment assistance for qualified homebuyers.

To be eligible, homebuyers must have an annual income that does not exceed 120 percent of the Tucson-area median income—about $68,400 for a family of four—with income maximums varying depending on family size and type of loan.

Potential buyers must complete an eight-hour education session with Primavera Foundation or another HUD-approved counseling agency.

For more information go to primavera.org, or call 882-5383.

The Tucson NeighborhoodLIFT program,—which seeks to help revitalize neighborhoods through sustainable home ownership—is cosponsored by Wells Fargo, NeighborWorks America, and the Primavera Foundation.
