Can an auto dealership rescind a rebate after documentation has been signed by both parties?

Question Details:

Last week, I purchased a new car from a dealer via financing. At signing, I was informed that I was eligible for a $500 "Family First" rebate which is included in the overall credit deduction from the total price of the automobile. I received a message from the dealer yesterday informing me that, because I no longer reside at my father's residence, the manufacturer will not approve this rebate and I must pay the dealer an additional $500. This is the dealer's error. I provided my present address at signing. I have driven the car for one week.
