CalPLUS Conventional Program and CalPlus FHA Program
Both programs are 30-year, fixed-rate loans (insured through either private mortgage insurance or the federal government) and are combined with the CalHFA Zero Interest Program (ZIP), a deferred-payment junior loan of 3 percent of the first mortgage loan amount which is used for down payment assistance. The conventional program is combined with the ZIP Extra program which offers an additional $6,500 of assistance with zero interest for first-time buyers of single-family homes or condominiums.
MyHome Assistance Program
This program must be combined with a CalHFA first mortgage loan. It offers a deferred-payment junior loan of up to 3.5% of a home’s purchase price or appraised value, whichever is lower, to cover a down payment and/or closing costs.
The Cal-EEM + Grant Program
In an effort to promote energy conservation, California has developed a program to help homebuyers and homeowners finance home improvements that make a household more energy efficient. The Cal-Energy Efficient Mortgage (EEM) + Grant program is a 30-year fixed rate FHA-backed first mortgage loan that pairs with a grant which is specifically used for energy-efficient home improvements. This program can be coupled with the California Homebuyer Down Payment Assistance Program or the Extra Credit Teacher Program.
