These are down payment assistance programs, as mentioned by my colleagues in previous comments. It sounds like you are doing your homework in efforts to purchase a home. Will this be your first purchase? I've helped clients utilize these programs. I'd be glad to help you and walk you through the process.

Please message or call me when you are available.

FHA is mortgage insurance that is provided by HUD the government agency.
With an FHA loan, the mortgage insurance is partially paid up front (added to your loan amount) and partially paid each month with your mortgage payment.
FHA mortgage insurance is not removable. The only way to remove FHA mortgage insurance is to refinance the loan.

CHDAP, CALFF,etc are down payment assitance and first time home buyer programs. Some are offered by cities, counties, etc.

Each county has different programs. Your best bet is to look at the Housing and Urban Development websites for your city and county for the programs they offer.

Hello MarcosLBC, each represents the type of loan a buyer may have access to and many which you mention are DAP's (Down Payment Assistance Programs). I am providing you a link to a web page I have which will add value to your question: http://goo.gl/G1Q3PH

Scroll down about midway through the page and some of them I have placed links too.

FYI...I have about three lenders who specialize in these programs so if you are in need of a reference to a good lender just drop me a line or email.

Always here to add value and I am always ready to work for you!

Best regards...
