Mayor Patsy Kinsey will announce a $500,000 grant to help prevent homelessness in Charlotte, NC. The grant is part of the $6.6 million Wells Fargo NeighborhoodLIFTSM program and will help support Charlotte’s “A Way Home Endowment Fund.” Kinsey is scheduled to make the announcement Friday, October 25, 2013 at 11:30 a.m. at the Charlotte Convention Center.
The press conference is a two-day event which runs through October 26th and will also allow prospective home buyers to qualify for $15,000 in down payment assistance for homes in Charlotte. In addition to the potential down payment assistance, participants will have the opportunity to get home buying education and preview homes for sale in local neighborhoods. Walk-ins are welcomed but perspective home buyers are encouraged to register for the event at www.wellsfargo.com/lift.
