There are several good down payment assistance programs available for first time home buyers in Riverside County.
There are several programs from CalHFA (CalPLUS, CalFHA, CHDAP, ECTP for Teachers).
CHF Platinum provides 3-5% in home buyer assistance and you don't even have to be a first time home buyer!
NHSIE provides the CityLIFT assistance progams which offers $15,000 for cities of Riverside, Moreno Valley, Corona. NHSIE also offes the CalHOME program.
MCC tax credit is available.
The key is working with a local lender who offers all of these programs (like me) and can even layer or combine some of the programs. Most lenders offer only 1-2 and then only try to sell you on that one program.
