The groups named the work day NeighborhoodLIFTSM Beautification Day to highlight the millions of dollars in down payment assistance still available to boost homeownership in the city.  Three homeowners on Peeples Street recently used $15,000 each from the NeighborhoodLIFTSM program to buy their houses.

The beautification event was part of a celebration during which NeighborWorks® America and its network of local organizations mobilize tens of thousands of volunteers in a week of neighborhood change and awareness all across the country.
