For Current Owners

MOHCD has programs to help current owners repair their apartments or help with a mortgage payment.

Current MOHCD program owners have additional requirements to follow when living in their unit and when selling their unit. We also have a quarterly newsletter for current MOHCD program owners.

Annual Monitoring for Mixed Income (Below Market Rate) Owners

Even though you can still live in your unit after your income increases, MOHCD has an occupancy requirement for homeowners who participate in our below-market-rate programs.

Every year, we'll ask for proof that everyone listed on the title lives at the home. You are not allowed to rent out your home on platforms like Airbnb.

Be sure to read the rules for your specific homebuyer program. We will also ask for proof that the rules are being followed.

Homeowners can use MOHCD funds to repair their units. We offer grants and loans, with each program having different sets of criteria.

Note: Many of these programs are under construction.

  • CalHOME

    For owners of 1-4 unit properties, to help fix building code issues, healthy and safety hazards, and provide accessibility modifications.

  • Lead Hazard Remediation

    For owners of single-unit properties, to remediate lead hazards. This grant is prioritized for homes with children under the age of 6.

  • Capital Improvements

    Owners of units 10 years or older can get funds to maintain the quality of their home.

Mortgage Help

Your housing counselor can refer you to our Mortgage Assistance Loan Program (MALP) to help you with your mortgage payments.
