Clarification Regarding Eligible Jurisdictions for GSFA Platinum "Assist-to-Own" Product
It has come to our attention that some of our Lenders are confused about where an eligible borrower can purchase or refinance using the "Assist-to-Own" Down Payment Assistance product available under the GSFA Platinum Program.

To clarify, the Property being purchased or refinanced using the "Assist-to-Own" Down Payment Assistance can be located anywhere in California. The borrower must work for a GSFA Member County to be eligible (be a County employee), but they do not have to purchase or refinance in the same County of their employment.

We hope that this provides clarification on this topic.
