Economics Program Hosts Housing Forums for Homeownership Month

During the month of June, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) will host housing forums in select markets across the country for National Homeownership Month. These forums will provide aspiring homeowners with information and resources to help navigate the path to homeownership successfully.  Housing counselors will be available to assist those looking to buy a home or are having challenges with payments on their current home.

The NAACP, in partnership with Wells Fargo, will offer the forums in St. Paul, MN; Washington, D.C.; Ft. Lauderdale; Houston and Las Vegas.

NAACP Interim President and CEO, Lorraine C. Miller:

Homeownership remains the primary source of wealth creation for most Americans, especially members of our communities. We are pleased to work with Wells Fargo to educate and connect members of our community to these housing forums and sustainable pathways to homeownership and economic security.

During the forums, participants will take part in panel discussions about homeownership, have an opportunity to speak face-to-face with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage consultants and other industry professionals, and receive information on down-payment assistance.
