Denver Mayor Michael Hancock on Wednesday officially launched a $5.65 million program aimed at helping consumers buy homes in the city.

“This public-private partnership has the potential to make a significant difference for Denver families and neighborhoods, by making home ownership more affordable for people who want to live here,” Hancock said at a press conference at the  Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building at Civic Center.
Denver is now the third city in the United States to be part of Wells Fargo’s Neighborhood LIFT program, which provides down payment assistance grants to eligible home buyers.
Of the $5.65 million committed by Wells Fargo to Denver, $4.5 million will go to down payment assistance. Another $500,000 will go toward improving Denver neighborhoods, Hancock said.The remainder will be spent on a two-day home buyer event April 4-5 at the Colorado Convention Center, where prospective home buyers can apply for the grants.

The program is available for those who are approved for home financing and their household income is equal to or less than 120 percent of the area median income.To receive the full grant amount, participants buying homes with a LIFT program grant must commit to live in the home for five years and qualify for a first mortgage on the property, Wells Fargo said Wednesday.
