The City of Clovis has two separate homebuyer programs.

  • One Program is funded with HOME Program funds, and is temporarily on hold, pending further direction from the State of California and from HUD.  As a result the City cannot process nor intake any applications for HOME funded downpayment and mortagage assistance loans.
  • The other Program is funded with CalHome Program funds, and is currently accepting participants.  The CalHome funded Purchase and Repair Program is administered through Habitat for Humanity, a local non-profit housing developer.  The program provides funds to eligible low-income first time homebuyers to purchase a home that is in need of repairs. Habitat for Humanity will screen applicants, assist with the lending application process, inspect homes, and oversee the repair process. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Habitat for Humanity first, to ensure the correct first steps are made, at (559) 237-4102, and ask for Marina.

Please return to this page often, preferably daily, to find out when the program is operational once more.
