Although the sensitivity to a low-mass Standard Model Higgs boson at the Fermilab Tevatron is highest for the primary search channels ($H\to b\bar{b}$ decay in association with a vector boson and H-WW), other channels contribute significantly to the combined Higgs search sensitivity. We report the results of searches for the Higgs boson produced in association with a top quark pair with the $H\to b\bar{b}$ decay, and also searches in the inclusive diphoton and ditau final states using up to 10~fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity collected by the CDF detector at $\sqrt{s}=1.96$ TeV. Despite their challenges, when combined, these secondary channels contribute appreciably to the low-mass Higgs boson sensitivity at the Tevatron.
