NPHS is partnering with the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (CAR) Housing Affordability Fund (HAF) to close homeownership gaps that impact the state’s *underserved communities with C.A.R.’s HAF Closing Cost Assistance Grant Program.
The program helps first-time homebuyers bridge the affordability gap by providing them with up to $10,000 in closing cost assistance. Each grant is provided to low-to-moderate income (120% AMI and below) first-time homebuyers who utilize the services of a CA REALTOR®. Household income (income from all household members regardless of if they are on the loan or not) is used to determine eligibility.
Complete applications must be submitted no later than three weeks prior to the close to escrow
