Could HUD Deal Be More Widely Available?

Regarding the Sept. 26 article "HUD Program Will Help Teachers Buy Homes" by Lew Sichelman, I think HUD should make these deals available for anyone, so that all citizens can help revitalize neighborhoods, not just police and teachers.

I realize that HUD wants persons who can make payments and keep up the property and that police and teachers groups are assured of income and the ability to repay. Yet why, with $100 down, couldn't even the lowest income persons be able to afford a home in a revitalization area?
