Down payment assistance loan and FHA approval??

if a community says that they are not FHA approved does that mean that i cannot use an FHA loan to buy in their community? ****can i still get the down payment assistance loan?*** if thay are not FHA approved?
Update: the home i am speaking of is a *new* condominium i believe it is not FHA because during construction they rented out a cirtain number before they were finished building "for financial reasons" and now it is considered a condo conversion. even though they rented out only a few dozen.
