HUD Housing Assistance Programs in California

HUD homeownership assistance programs chiefly consist of the FHA-insured loans that are available for buying a new home or refinancing an existing home anywhere in California. There are housing counseling agencies that offer free or low-cost counseling services for issues like home buying, foreclosures, credit rating, and reverse mortgages. A list of approved counselors serving your locality can be found at HUD website.

HUD Homes for Sale can be a good starting point for first time home buyer as these are usually available at affordable prices. You can see the listing of recently added REO properties in HUD’s inventory at its website HUD Home Store. PEMCO is one of the few asset managers that share the responsibility of selling these residential properties in California.

There is also a Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program that is made available through local Public Housing Agencies (PHA). The department also runs special housing programs for seniors and other vulnerable sections of the community. Moreover, one can find assistance programs dealing separately with legal issues, disaster relief and emergency situations, utility bills, rural housing, health and environment issues, foreclosures and more.

HUD Rental Assistance Programs in California

HUD offers rental help through a number of programs targeting low-income communities. These may include subsidized apartments and housing choice voucher programs. Subsidized apartments are available for rent to low-income tenants at reduced rents. These apartments may be owned privately, but they agree to reduce the rent as they get the guarantee of receiving rental income from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Housing Choice Vouchers, which are also known commonly as Section 8, help one find a rental accommodation easily and pay the rent comfortably. The vouchers are made available through one or the other Public Housing Agency. You should contact the nearest PHA to know if it is accepting applications now. A waiting list is usually published and applicants are issued vouchers according to their ranking on the list. It is possible to apply at more than one PHA. The list of PHAs in California can be found at the HUD website.
