Eligible first-time California homebuyers from an underserved community can apply for a grant up to $10,000. 

CAR says the additional $500,000 brings the total to $2 million for HAF. The Neighborhood Partnership Housing Services (NPHS) is administering the grant throughout the 58 California counties.

Countless studies have found that homeownership is critical to building generational wealth and economic security for working families,” said CAR President Jennifer Branchini.
