Are there any assistant programs out there for people purchasing a home? I'm aware of various programs for FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS, but that is not me. Is there any help for us?

A few years ago we dropped a 20% down-payment on a home (we sold our first home and bought this current home put a 20% down payment). With the market the way it is, that 20% is now long gone. If we sold our home today, we would just barely be able to pay off our mortgage - and that's even iffy.
I've heard of the $8,000.00 tax credit for first time home buyers, but what about the rest of us who just lost a crap load of money that I thought was safely tucked away into the equity of our home?
Any programs out there that you're aware of? I'm especially interested in programs that aren't "builder" programs (new build incentives).
