Well, RD is out of Money...What Now???

Mortgage and Lending with Icon Mortgage NMLS #134262

Simple! Help us get the program refunded and continue funding independent from appropriations for the life of the program.

How, you ask? Again, Simple but it will take a few moments of your time and a couple of long distance minutes on next month's phone bill.

The bill in question is HR 5017, or S3266. Call Any or Preferrably ALL of the following individuals and DEMAND attention on this important issue. You can also look for my soon coming blog that will provide a form letter that you can send to each of these people via their website, and oh yes...I WILL provide links.

Debbie Stabenow (202) 224-4822. Your trusted local Michigan Senator that doesn't even realize that Michigan accounts for 28% of ALL Rural Housing Loans or that in Michigan- 31% of all mortgage loans originated are Rural Housing loans, or that 45% of First Time Home buyers in Michigan rely on USDA Guaranteed Financing.

BTW-Carl Levin, no matter how you feel about him, was an original co-sponsor of the bill.


United States Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. (202) 224-739.

These are the people who are so busy passing pet project regulatory legislation that will be obsolete in 2 years that they have ignored this pertinent issue and now are just so drained that they want to recess until after the Memorial Day Holiday. DEMAND that they don't, We need your support.


Members of the Banking and Housing Committee that were original supporters of this bill. Be nice to these ones, they were trying to do well, but were met with Senator Dodd's opposition.

I hope RD will be refunded for the rest of the nation.  We are somewhat fortunate here in Louisiana if you can call it that since we were funded for our state due to the 2005 hurricanes---The government needs to realize that USDA is the only 100% financing available for homebuyers and for some it is the only way they will ever be able to buy a home.

USDA is a very good loan program that needs to continue.

Marilyn, yeah it is a tough way to be lucky, but whatever works to keep financing available. What's ridiculous is that they see it as an emergency need yet let it run out everywhere else. Hopefully it won't be long though. I really don't think it will.
