What is the application process for the City Second Loan Program (CSLP) offered by the SF Mayor's Office of Housing (MOH)?
The first step in applying for the City Second Loan Program (CSLP) offered to first-time homebuyers by the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing (MOH) is to complete a first-time homebuyer education course through one of MOH’s five approved housing counseling agencies.
The five agencies offering the first-time homebuyer education course can be found here. Once the course has been completed, the borrower must go to one of the participating lenders to get pre-approval or pre-qualification. The list of participating lenders for CSLP can be found here. Once pre-qualified there are several more steps in the CSLP applicaiton process including determining the maximum first mortage for which you can qualify, finding a property, and entering a purchase agreement.
