by:

The California Housing Finance Agency, otherwise known as CalHFA, is an independent agency in the State of California that has been providing financial assistance to low and moderate income Californians in an attempt to help them seek safe, decent and affordable housing opportunities.

The programs of CalHFA are constantly guided by its overall agency mission which is to "finance below market rate loans to create safe, decent and affordable rental housing and to assist first-time homebuyers in achieving the dream of homeownership."

In line with this mission, the California Housing Finance Agency has constituted the establishment of the California Homebuyer's Downpayment Assistance Program, more commonly referred to as CHDAP.

The California Homebuyer's Downpayment Assistance Program is a deferred payment junior loan that can be used in conjunction with other CalHFA housing programs. It provides borrowers with funds amounting to 3% of the actual value of the property that they wish to inquire in order to cover the downpayment costs.
