Single Family Programs

Single Family Lending

The Single Family Lending division works to help first-time homebuyers and others purchase homes in California. Traditionally, this has been accomplished through the financing of first mortgages, but the division's focus has shifted to down payment assistance, including the recently introduced CalPLUS program. The division also works with lending partners, municipalities and others in the private and public sectors to facilitate homeownership.
