Your help is needed! On July 31, several members of Congress introduced H.R. 6694 which would save Downpayment Assistance...indefinitely! If we continue to work hard together, DPA could be reinstated by the October 1st deadline that's currently in place.

For the next 5 weeks, Congress will be out of session and we will have a unique opportunity to see them at their home offices and convince them to support H.R. 6694. We're targeting Senators because historically, they have not understood the value of Downpayment Assistance to homebuyers and the current economy. Here's how you can most effectively influence your Senators.

  Go to RallyForHomeownership.org (even if you've been there before) and ask Congress to specifically pass H.R 6694.

Call your State Senators and tell them why they need to support H.R. 6694. Get Your Senators' Phone Numbers HERE! 

Get a group of people together and visit your Senators at their local offices and tell them why they need to support H.R. 6694. Get Your State Senators' office addresses and tips on setting up an appointment HERE!

Thanks for the post. It's great information and hopefully enough "troops" will be rallied to effect this change in Congress.

Thanks... Have you been getting any action alerts from NAR on these matters? I have not seen one for a while.

I have seen a lot of support by builders, lobbyists and politicians and real estate agents to amend the broad ban on these programs. Ameridream and the other programs have provided the boost towards many home buyers american dream.
