Established in 1975, CalHFA was chartered as the State’s affordable housing bank to make low interest rate loans through the sale of tax-exempt bonds. A completely self-supporting State agency, bonds are repaid by revenues generated through mortgage loans, not taxpayer dollars.

HELP: Half Percent Down Payment Program   PROGRAM ON HOLD

CHF Access Half Percent Down Payment Assistance Program

Owning a home may be easier than you thought possible with the CHF ACCESS Down Payment Assistance Program. The Program is designed to assist low-to-moderate income homebuyers with the purchase of a home, by providing a means to finance most of the associated down payment.
The Program combines a 30-year fixed interest rate FHA First Mortgage Loan with down payment and/or closing cost assistance from CHF in the form of a low fixed interest rate Second Mortgage, making combined financing up to 99.5% of the purchase price possible. It is available for purchases of both new and existing homes, as long as the home will be the primary residence of the homebuyer, and does not require that the homebuyer be a first-time homebuyer.

Fannie Mae:
annie Mae provides stability, liquidity, and affordability to the nation's housing finance system under all economic conditions. We exist to expand affordable housing and bring global capital to local communities in order to serve the U.S. housing market. Fannie Mae has a federal charter and operates in America's secondary mortgage market to ensure that mortgage bankers and other lenders have enough funds to lend to home buyers at low rates. Our job is to help those who house America. Fannie Mae was created in 1938, under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, at a time when millions of families could not become homeowners, or risked losing their homes, for lack of a consistent supply of mortgage funds across America. The government established Fannie Mae in order to expand the flow of mortgage funds in all communities, at all times, under all economic conditions, and to help lower the costs to buy a home. Fannie Mae has a unique duty to the public it serves -- and the private investors that fuel its service -- to be a model company focused on service, reliability, and value. Like all who participate in the housing market, Fannie Mae has a responsibility to help home buyers, homeowners, and communities through market challenges. We believe in the long term health of America's housing market. The nation is growing and that growth will bring a renewed demand for housing and for responsible, sustainable mortgage lending. Fannie Mae will be there to help meet America's changing housing needs.

Freddie Mac:
Every day Freddie Mac helps millions of families in neighborhoods across America buy their own homes or enjoy quality and affordable rental housing by linking them to the world's capital markets. In the process we reduce the costs of housing finance and expand housing opportunities for all families, including low-income and minority families. It is a unique mortgage finance system that makes homeownership a reality for more of America's families.

Ginnie Mae:
At Ginnie Mae, they help make affordable housing a reality for millions of low- and moderate-income households across America by channeling global capital into the nation's housing markets. Specifically, the Ginnie Mae guaranty allows mortgage lenders to obtain a better price for their mortgage loans in the secondary market. The lenders can then use the proceeds to make new mortgage loans available.Ginnie Mae does not buy or sell loans or issue mortgage-backed securities (MBS). Therefore, Ginnie Mae's balance sheet doesn't use derivatives to hedge or carry long term debt.What Ginnie Mae does is guarantee investors the timely payment of principal and interest on MBS backed by federally insured or guaranteed loans — mainly loans insured by the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) or guaranteed by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). Other guarantors or issuers of loans eligible as collateral for Ginnie Mae MBS include the Department of Agriculture's Rural Housing Service (RHS) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH).Ginnie Mae securities are the only MBS to carry the full faith and credit guaranty of the United States government, which means that even in difficult times an investment in Ginnie Mae MBS is one of the safest an investor can make.

USDA Rural zero down:                          Frank Shaw, Sheryl Arndt, Authorized USDA Rural Loan Officer
No where is the American dream of home ownership more desired than in California. There is no more committed group, helping Californians realize this dream than the USDA Rural Development Single-Family Housing Team. Their Single-Family Housing Program helps finance new or improved housing for moderate-,low- and very-low-income families each year. In 2007, they invested over $104 million in loan and grant programs to encourage affordable housing in California.Major initiatives within this department include Home Ownership Loans, which help low-income households purchase, construct, repair or relocate homes; Home improvement and Repair Loans and Grants, which enable very-low income rural homeowners to remove health and safety hazards from their homes and make homes accessible for people with disabilities; and Self-Help Housing Loans, which enable groups of 8-12 low-income families to build their own homes providing materials and skilled labor they cannot furnish themselves. California's robust housing market has created significant challenge for affordable housing in California. Strong demand for housing combined with higher construction costs and lagging incomes, makes homeownership difficult, especially for first-time homebuyers. USDA Rural Development, with its theme, "Committed to the future of rural communities," is committed to forming new partnerships with local business groups and lenders to strengthen the economic fabric of rural counties. They will remain steadfast in their missions to encourage development of low-income housing.
