CalHFA Program Bulletins are addendums to the Lender Program Manual and important communication tools to our lending partners. These bulletins are provided in Adobe PDF format and require Adobe Reader to open and view them.
CalHFA's Lender Program Manual has moved to it's new location.
Updates and changes will be announced from time to time via a Program Bulletin ("Program Bulletin" or "Program Bulletins") and Lenders should sign up for Enews announcements and monitor CalHFA’s website for specific Program Bulletin updates and changes to the Program Manual.
Whenever possible, CalHFA will provide its Lenders a five (5) business day notice via a CalHFA Program Bulletin or Enews announcement regarding program and policy changes.
Some exceptions may apply to the notification policy, such as daily interest rate announcements and changes directed by other state (e.g. State Treasurer’s Office), federal (e.g. GSEs, FHA) or private (e.g. Master Servicer and Mortgage Insurance provider) partners who have not allowed sufficient time for a 5-day notification.
The Scenario Calculator helps you compare CalHFA loans to determine what loan scenario works best for your client.
