Down payment assistance program for California homebuyers

Housing Program Index

The CHF Platinum Program is designed to assist low-to-moderate income homebuyers with the purchase of a home, by providing down payment and/or closing cost assistance (currently in the form of a Grant). Many times this assistance means families and individuals can purchase a home much sooner than they thought possible.

The program is available for the purchase of an owner occupied principal residence, including agency-approved condominiums or planned unit developments (PUDs) located in the state of California. It is not limited to first-time homebuyers.

The Grant can be used towards the homebuyer’s down payment and/or eligible closing costs on a variety of Mortgage Loans. It is available for purchases of both new and existing homes, as long as the home will be the primary residence of the homebuyer.
