The Wells Fargo Housing Foundation through the Homeownership Counseling Grant Program, supports local nonprofit housing organizations to create affordable and sustainable homeownership opportunities for low-to-moderate income (LMI) people. The grant program focuses exclusively on homebuyer counseling, homebuyer education, and foreclosure prevention activities. All grants are reviewed by a local Wells Fargo Housing Foundation charitable giving manager and committee for a final funding decision.

Grants are provided for costs directly associated with the following program segments:

•Homebuyer counseling: Counselor-to-client assistance that addresses unique financial circumstances and housing issues, and focuses on overcoming specific obstacles to achieve housing goals such as: repairing credit, locating cash for a down payment, recognizing predatory lending practices, understanding fair lending, and fair housing requirements, avoiding foreclosure, or resolving a financial crisis. Includes credit and budget counseling efforts.

•Homebuyer education: Education with an established curriculum and instructional goals, provided in a group or classroom setting or other formats (such as online), that covers such homeownership topics as the home buying process, how to maintain a home, budgeting, the

 

importance of good credit, and other home buying related subjects. Pre-homebuyer education includes 4 to 8-hour workshops. Post-homebuyer education includes reverse-mortgage education efforts.

•Foreclosure prevention counseling: Counseling efforts designed to help families keep homes that are facing foreclosure and stabilize the overall housing market. Provides information and assistance to avoid foreclosure.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts range between $250 and $1,000.

Eligibility: The nonprofit organization must be tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Service Code 501(c)(3). Additionally, an eligible non-profit must have completed at least two consecutive years of operations as of the date of application. A non-profit may only receive one grant per calendar year from the Homeownership Counseling Grant program. Grant funding must be used within one year of grant award date.
