who we are and what we do


CRHMFA Homebuyers Fund (CHF) is a duly constituted public entity and agency, organized in 1993 and existing under and by virtue of Articles 1 through 4 of Chapter 5 of Division 7 of Title 1 of the Government Code of the State of California. In this capacity, CHF has partnered with local and national financial and lending institutions to provide affordable financing programs with a focus on low-to-moderate income families in California. CHF is also an affiliate of Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC), a service organization that champions policies on behalf of California's rural counties.

For two decades, CHF has offered Californians homebuyer assistance programs featuring competitive interest rates and down payment and/or closing cost assistance. In 2010, CHF expanded to also provide competitive financing to homeowners interested in making energy efficiency improvements to their home as part of the CHF Residential Energy Retrofit Program.
