Nearly 600 prospective Tampa home buyers seeking down payment assistance and home renovation grants up to $15,000 apiece have registered to attend a Wells Fargo event that kicks off today . Wells Fargo has earmarked $7 million for Tampa residents under its Neighborhood LIFT program. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today and Saturday at the Tampa Convention Center. About 150 Wells Fargo employees will be on hand to help applicants. To qualify for down payment money, residents must live in Tampa and have an annual income not exceeding 120 percent of the median income for the area. For Tampa, that means an income of less than $67,700 for a family of four. Participants in the program do not have to get their mortgage loan through Wells Fargo, bank spokeswoman Kathy Harrison said . By late Thursday, advance registration had been closed. Walk-ins are welcome, but they may need to wait for an available Wells Fargo representative. For details , go to www.neighborhoodlift.org.
