Town Hall with Ann Ashburn, President and CEO, AmeriDream
August 19th and 20th - 3:00pm EST/12:00pmPST
DPA was eliminated effective October 1, 2008, in the comprehensive housing bill (H.R.3221) due to political negotiations. Yet DPA continues to be recognized as a valuable and needed program as stated by the thousands of supporters, including the Chairman of the House Financial Services committee. Just one day after (H.R. 3321) was signed by the President, members of the House introduced a new bill (H.R.6694) to reauthorize, reform and save DPA. The reforms eliminate HUD's stated concerns regarding the program.
Ann Ashburn, President and CEO of AmeriDream led a Town Hall meeting to discuss:
- The introduction of a new bill and timeline
- The impact to our communities and economy if Charitable DPA goes away
- Risk-Based Pricing Authorization Act of 2008
- What you can do to help convince Congress to pass H.R. 6694 quickly, allowing down payment assistance to continue indefinitely, giving hundreds of thousands of individuals and families the continued opportunity of affordable homeownership

Down Payment Assistance Rally
We are planning a group event at Senator McCain's campaign office in Tempe on August 26th at 10:00AM. Everyone will meet here at the US Pref office by 9 a.m. and carpool over to Tempe. We want to show our support for homebuyers and the need for the downpayment assistance programs. Each participant should bring a food item, or two, such as a box of macaroni and cheese, canned vegetable etc for a donation to a local food bank. We will be accompanied by National exposure as a local real estate company coming together for a good cause! I look forward to seeing everyone on the 26th.
