Latino Community Foundation & CalHFA Lunch & Learn

Homeownership among Latinos is on the rise, but persistent gaps in homeownership rates and high housing costs still limit access and threaten to perpetuate wealth inequality in our communities. This is especially true for our low- and middle-income families.

You are invited to join the Latino Community Foundation and the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA) for a virtual Lunch & Learn, to learn more about CalHFA and its programs to support first-time homebuyers access mortgages and receive down payment and closing cost assistance.

Since 2019, the State of California has invested over $30 billion in housing-related programs across a number of agencies, including CalHFA, the state’s affordable housing lender. In addition to state funding, CalHFA also administers federal resources and employs a lender network. As these funds and programs are deployed our engagement will be key to ensuring that families in our communities can benefit. Additional information about CalHFA and its programs can be found at

We hope you will join us!

California at a Crossroads

With over 22 million registered voters, California is the nation’s largest democracy. Nowhere was that power most felt than in the recent 2022 Midterm Elections where Black, Indigenous and American Indian and Alaska Native, Asian, and Latino voters proved decisive in several important races across all levels of government. From electing the first Black woman mayor of Los Angeles to cementing the political power of key appointees made during Governor Newsom’s first term, California’s political leadership has never been more representative and inclusive.

And as we approach a critical moment in our state’s history in closing a multi-billion dollar budget deficit, how we will deliver just and equitable investments that inspires confidence and participation in our government?

At this historic convening, the California Black Freedom Fund, California Native Vote Project, Asian American Futures, and Latino Community Foundation, will come together to host a discussion on the future of California’s democracy – its challenges, its opportunities, and the responsibilities each of us hold to make the state a continued example of leadership in the face of numerous crises facing our collective communities.

Look forward to seeing you there!
