Foreclosed Homes In El Paso To Be Restored With Help From Wells Fargo

EL PASO, Texas, Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation (TSAHC) is pleased to announce it has received a $75,000 grant from Wells Fargo to support the restoration of foreclosed or distressed properties in El Paso. The grant is part of Wells Fargo's 2013  Leading the Way Home®  program Priority Markets Initiative aimed to help revitalize and stabilize neighborhoods.

TSAHC is a statewide housing nonprofit that works to restore foreclosed homes that are sold to eligible veterans, low income families and people with disabilities as part of their Affordable Communities of Texas (ACT) program. TSAHC will partner with local nonprofit El Paso Collaborative for Community and Economic Development ("El Paso Collaborative") to restore several foreclosed homes in El Paso County that will be sold to eligible families.

"We are very grateful and honored to be receiving this award from Wells Fargo," said David Long, President of the Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation. "Thanks to Wells Fargo's generosity, TSAHC and El Paso Collaborative will be able to stabilize communities affected by foreclosure and give deserving families, like veterans in El Paso, the opportunity to own a home of their own." 

"We are excited to be partnering with TSAHC and Wells Fargo to not only revitalize several homes in our community but also find eligible families who are ready to become homeowners," said Delia Chavez, Executive Director of the El Paso Collaborative for Community and Economic Development.    

TSAHC received a similar grant from Wells Fargo to be used in the San Antonio area. The grant was awarded after a competitive application and review process administered by the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation. 

Individuals interested in the homes available should contact Juan Garcia at the El Paso Collaborative at 915-590-1210, Ext. 152.
