NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -

A new program to promote home ownership in New Haven, East Haven and West Haven is helping new buyers with their initial down payments.

The city lift program through Wells Fargo will provide more than 200 first time buyers with $15,000 grants towards their new home.

The program gave Kym McKoy an opportunity she never thought would be possible.

“I broke down and I cried because I didn't think this would be a completed dream of mine,” McKoy said. “But, I did complete it and now I get to go on and start a new dream.”

Wells Fargo hopes the program will attract more homebuyers to the new haven area.
