Wells Fargo giving $200,000 to Tarrant housing agency
Tarrant County Housing Partnership on Thursday will receive a grant for $200,000 from Wells Fargo Housing Foundation to support the agency’s work providing affordable housing. The grant is part of Wells Fargo’s national effort to increase affordable housing while stabilizing and rebuilding distressed neighborhoods. It's the foundation's second grant to the agency and one of 59 Priority Market grants nationally totaling $6 million. Wells Fargo executives, leaders of the Tarrant County Housing Partnership, Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price and Tarrant County Development Director Patricia Ward will participate in the ceremony and formal check presentation Thursday at 2 p.m. at the Hazel Harvey Peace Center for Neighborhoods, 818 Missouri Ave. in Fort Worth.
“Our Dallas-Fort Worth team members are really pleased that we can continue to support the Tarrant County Housing Partnership and the great work it does for affordable housing and neighborhood stabilization in Tarrant County,” said John Gavin, Wells Fargo’s regional president for community banking. Gavin and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Regional Sales Manager Michelle Eldridge will represent Wells Fargo at the ceremony. “It’s hard to express in words our appreciation for the continued support of Wells Fargo,” said Donna VanNess, president of Tarrant County Housing Partnership. “Their generosity has been an important factor in our success.”
