California’s budget crisis has forced the state’s Housing Finance Agency to suspend its 30-year fixed-rate mortgage loan and down-payment assistance programs.

CalHFA, which purchases more than $1 billion in mortgage loans a year, is among state agencies that depend on a line of credit from a pooled money investment account that’s funded by state bond issues.
