Educators -Downpayment Assistance Program: Educators-DALP helps financially-eligible educators buy a home in San Francisco. It is a downpayment loan up to $375,000, to bid on a property on San Francisco’s open market. The loan is used on the downpayment of a single unit that will become a primary residence.

It is a silent second loan that requires no monthly payments for 30 years, or until the property is sold. Repayment of the loan includes the principal amount, plus an equitable share of appreciation of the property. Find out more at: https://sfmohcd.org/educators-dalp.

Teacher Next Door (TND) Program: MOHCD helps SFUSD educators buy their first home in San Francisco. It provides $40,000 for a market rate unit, or $20,000 for a below-market-rate unit. It is typically layered on top of other MOHCD loan programs, such as DALP or City Second, if additional funding is needed.

The loan is forgiven after 10 years, if all program requirements are met. There is no interest, and no shared appreciation. Find out more at: https://sfmohcd.org/teacher-next-door.

Downpayment Assistance Loan Program (DALP): DALP is a downpayment loan up to $375,000, to bid on a property on San Francisco’s open market. The loan must be used on the downpayment of a single unit that will become a primary residence. The owner can re-sell the unit at market prices.

The DALP is a silent second loan that requires no monthly payments for 30 years, or until the property is sold. The owner pays MOHCD back the principal amount, plus an equitable share of appreciation. Find out more at: https://sfmohcd.org/dalp-details.

City Second Loan Program (CSLP): The City Second Loan Program provides a downpayment loan, which can be up to $375,000, but depends on fund availability. The loan is used to bid on a collection of properties also advertised on the open market.

Interested buyers apply to listings, and are pre-approved by MOHCD for income. After winning the bid, the buyer then works with their lender to apply for loan funds. Find out more at: https://sfmohcd.org/city-second-details.
