GSFA is Excited to Announce a New DPA Program
Coming this Summer!
Join us for Live Lender Training in May and June
For more than 26 years, GSFA has provided affordable homeownership programs in California, with a special focus on offering down payment and closing cost assistance (DPA) to homebuyers in the low-to-moderate income arena. We work hard to innovate and expand our programs to stay competitive and offer the best features and options. So, it is with excitement that we announce that GSFA will be adding another DPA program called "GSFA OpenDoors" to our menu of affordable homeownership programs this summer.

GSFA OpenDoors is designed to provide up to 7% in down payment and/or closing cost assistance in conjunction with FHA, VA, USDA and Conventional financing. It will feature some enhancements to credit score requirements, debt-to-income ratios and pricing. Complete program guidelines and Lender participation documents will be available when the program is officially available. The Program will be available to Correspondent Lenders of Gateway Mortgage Group as the Program's Master Servicer.
