City leaders want to make it easier to buy a home in West Sacramento

The city of West Sacramento is considering a new program to spur homeownership in parts of the city. West Sacramento's City Council is set to weigh in on a proposal Wednesday to launch a program that would provide financial assistance to help prospective homebuyers afford a down payment. The funds would be used to supplement an ongoing a grant program in the region called NeighborhoodLIFT, according to the city.
