California counties making a difference
chf membership for rural and urban California counties
CHF membership is a win-win for California counties interested in supporting affordable homeownership. Membership in CHF allows a county to more effectively leverage the state allocated funds distributed annually for single-family housing initiatives.
When a county becomes a CHF Member or Associate Member, the county's residents have access to the CHF Housing Programs which can help families and individuals purchase homes or make energy efficiency improvements to their properties. With membership, counties assign all or a portion of their state allocated funds for single-family housing to CHF. These funds allow CHF to provide homeownership programs through the issuance of taxable and tax-exempt bonds. Some CHF programs are funded through private financing and/or other sources. More…
Today, the CHF Membership consists of 32 Member Counties, 21 Associate Member Counties and two additional Associate Member Cities of California. Some CHF loan programs, such as the CHF Platinum and CHF ACCESS down payment assistance programs are not just available within the CHF Membership, but throughout California.
