GSFA Platinum Program

Down-Payment Assistance Program
Competitive Fixed-Rate Financing With a 5% Grant

Academy Mortgage is pleased to offer an exclusive loan solution and grant program for low- to moderate-income individuals and families in California.

Through the GSFA Platinum Program, Academy provides qualified homebuyers with competitive 30-year home financing and a grant that can be used toward down payment or closing costs. The grant does not have to be repaid. Many times this allows homebuyers to purchase a home sooner than they thought possible.
