Sure you can.

Income limits vary from county to county If you go to the CHDP website you may be able to find the table that outlines income limits by county.

Best of luck to you!

Each county has different income parameters.
Income is based upon the number of people in your family.
As the number of people in your family increase, the maximum allowable income for that area increases, as well.
The income is based upon the median income for that county.

Hi Marcos,

FHA does not have income limits.

If your annual salary is $70k, with CHDAP behind a conventional mortgage, you would need to have 3 in your family to qualify in Los Angeles county. And that is the same for the CALHFA MCC program.

With CalPlus, CalFFA, ECTP and CHDAP behind an FHA loan, you would need 4 in the family in Los Angeles county if your annual salary is $70k.

Income Limits for NHF / CHF Down Payment Assistance Programs is $80,040 for Los Angeles County.

Yes, it depends on how many people you support with that income. For that you will need minimum 3. If you need more info or help in this whole home buying process let me know.
