Ameridream and Nehemiah Downpayment Assistance Programs In Jeapordy
The Ameridream and Nehemiah seller-funded downpayment assistance programs are in jeapordy. They may be eliminated this fall unless Congress approves the FHA Seller-Financed Downpayment Reform and Risk-Based Pricing Authorization Act of 2008 (H.R. 6694).

…the bottom line is that thousands of potential homebuyers will not be able to purchase homes if the programs are discontinued.
