Nonprofits & Local Agencies

One of the most important benefits of using a CalHFA loan for a homebuyer is the access it provides to down payment assistance programs, and the most important providers of down payment assistance programs are localities and non-profits. CalHFA is eager to form partnerships with local agencies, as they can help homebuyers make informed choices about what loan is best, and what down payment assistance programs are available.
