As the ED of the nonprofit that actually administers the LIFT program, I suggets you contact Neighborhood Housing Services of Southern Nevada (NHSSN). NHSSN is the only organization that can grant you $15,000 in LIFT Funds. Wells Fargo donated the money to NeighborWorks American and NHSSN received the grant to provide the $15,000 Down Payment Assistance. So while Wells Fargo can act as the first Mortgage Lender they do not provide the funds for the second. NHSSN can provide you with a list of approved lenders and realtors that have been certified.
