The amount of down payment assistance varies by market.

Combined income for all borrowers on the loan cannot exceed the program income limits.

Down payment assistance cannot be used to purchase bank-owned properties managed by Wells Fargo Premiere Asset Services.

Customers must complete an approved homebuyer education program prior to requesting down payment assistance funds.

The NeighborhoodLIFT® program is a collaboration between Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., Wells Fargo Foundation, and NeighborWorks® America, an independent nonprofit organization.

The first mortgage can be financed by any NeighborhoodLIFT program-approved lender.

Employees of Wells Fargo and NeighborWorks America are not eligible to participate in the LIFT programs. This limitation also applies to an employee's immediate family, including spouses and dependent children, where the employee would have beneficial ownership of the property purchased using the assistance.
