Buying a short sale house requirements?

I was wondering if buying a foreclosed home in Manteca,CA would required me to put a down payment when buying the home? If so what is the minimum required?
I would prefer not putting any thing down for a downpayment at all. Im actually trying to buy a new home but they require 3% down which comes out to $11,500. I dont have that kind of cash anywhere.
