Wells Fargo & Co. has pledged $9 million in down payment assistance to homebuyers in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Wells Fargo regional president Dave Kvamme tells KARE 11 News that prospective buyers don't have to use Wells Fargo as their mortgage lender, but must apply for the grant at a two-day event at the Minneapolis Convention Center Sept. 7th and 8th from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
