The Federal Reserve, the Treasury Department, and other agencies have been trying to encourage Americans to buy homes for years, using tax incentives and public housing stock to buy and rent.
The latest round of stimulus money helped spur a wave of home sales in the months leading up to the election of President Donald Trump in November.
But in October, the federal government announced that it was reducing the amount of mortgage relief it would give to people with a 30-year mortgage and that the money would no longer be available for loans with a 20-year or 30-month mortgage.
The move angered investors who had hoped that a reduction in the federal tax credit for homeowners would drive down the price of homes.
Since then, many investors have sold their shares, leaving the stock down about 6%.
On Monday, the S&P 500 index dropped by 0.6%, with the Nasdaq falling by 0,2%.
The Nasdaq dropped by 6.6% in early trade.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell by 1.1%, the S.&, P.<., S.Y.U. lost 1.4%, and the Russell 2000 index lost 1%.
The index is down about 5% since the start of the year.
The dollar has gained more than 2% against a basket of currencies this year, and a rally in the stock market has fueled the selloff.
While investors have enjoyed gains this year because of the tax credit, there has also been a lot of speculation about what the tax cuts will do to the housing sector.
In the next few months, investors will need to decide what to do about the stimulus money that has already been allocated to the mortgage market, and how much to sell.
What investors should know about the Federal Reserve stimulus package A federal housing program known as the HOME Investment Council was created by the Bush administration in 2006 to help fund home purchases.
It was designed to be a way for homeowners to pay down their mortgage debt while paying taxes.
In 2008, President Obama expanded the program, creating a second, lower level of aid.
In 2012, Congress created the National Housing Trust Fund, which is the main source of housing finance for the federal budget.
The program has provided about $7.5 billion in loans to people and their family members who need help paying down their mortgages, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis.
The funds help low- and moderate-income families afford home improvements and buy a house.
The housing program is still a small portion of the federal economy, but its funding is important for helping millions of people get on their feet, said Matthew Biesecker, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, a progressive think tank.
The government should focus more on making sure that there are no new rules to increase demand for housing, he said.
The housing market is at an all-time high.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, home prices increased 4.6 percent in the second quarter of this year.
That’s an increase of 9.2% from a year earlier.
The rate of growth is more than double the national average for the last 20 years.
The market is still recovering from the 2008 financial crisis, which has reduced the supply of new homes and forced prices to decline, Bieser said.
