Homeowner & Home Buyer Programs

Home Buyers Assistance


The waitlist for the Homebuyer Assistance Loan Program is now closed. The program is a gap loan program to assist persons who have not owned homes in the past. Read the Information sheet to see the details of the program. People that submitted waitlist applications on October 13, 2021 should get an update from County Staff in the next few weeks on their position on the waitlist. Persons will be served when they come to the top of the list.  Be aware you must be low income (see below), but also given the house prices in Humboldt County you must earn enough income to qualify for a first loan.

Homeowner - Home Fix-Up and Repair Funds


Humboldt County has funds for lower-income homeowners, living in smaller cities and the unincorporated areas, to fix-up and repair health and safety items.  To see if your house is in a qualified city or the unincorporated area please contract the office.
