S.F. homebuyer program low on dough

From Curbed.com blog

SAN FRANCISCO — The Mayor’s Office of Housing has joined the banks in tightening its purse strings, or putting its plastic in the freezer, as it were. As a result, potential homebuyers who would otherwise be eligible for the city’s loan program are getting frozen out.

The downpayment assistance loan program, which offers loans for first-time homebuyers who are within a certain range of the city’s median income, is "running low" on funds — and is "therefore restricting limited funds to stabilize those communities with the greatest need."
