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.
CalHFA only works with approved, skilled loan officers who are familiar with CalHFA's loan programs and their various requirements, options and benefits.
- View this list of CalHFA preferred loan officers to locate the name and phone number of a CalHFA-trained loan officer near you.
- Our lender database will allow you to determine which CalHFA loan programs each lender will process or help you locate a branch office near you.
(Please note that all branch offices may or may not have loan officers on site that are trained to process CalHFA loans.)
The Scenario Calculator helps you compare CalHFA loans to determine what loan scenario works best for your client.
