The CHDAP provides a deferred-payment junior loan – up to 3% of the purchase price, or appraised value, whichever is less, to be used for their down payment and/or closing costs. This program may be combined with a CalHFA or non-CalHFA, first mortgage loan.

If your fico scores are below 640, you may consider CHF Access

Both Down Payment Assistance Programs are only 1/2%, Half Percent down and can contribute towards closing costs. Premium financing can cover closing costs as well.
DOWN PAYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
The money you put "down" or the down payment and/or closing costs on your home loan can be one of the largest hurdles for many first-time homebuyers. That's why CalHFA offers several options for down payment and closing cost assistance. This type of assistance is often called a second or subordinate loan. CalHFA's subordinate loans are "silent seconds", meaning payments on this loan are deferred so you do not have to make a payment on this assistance until your home is sold, refinanced or paid in full.
This helps to keep your monthly mortgage payment affordable.
THIS IS NOT A GRANT, and the second mortgage is to be paid back at the sale or refinance of the home and there is no pre-payment penalty.
Program Eligibility will be determined for both "Borrower" and "Property" requirements to determine if you may be eligible to apply for the CHDAP program.
