Together We Can Make a Difference

To-date, GSFA issued 164 in mortgage revenue bonds for multi-family housing. The bonds were issued to finance the acquisition and/or renovation of rental housing for low-and moderate-income families. GSFA also provided 3 in private loan financing to bridge gaps in funding and help projects reach feasibility.

Several projects have focused on affordable housing for seniors. One such project was the acquisition and rehab of an existing senior community apartment complex “Seasons at Simi Valley Apartments,” located in Ventura County. GSFA participated in financing the acquisition of the 69-unit property as well as $10,000 in renovations for each unit. Of the units, 100% were set aside for seniors with incomes at or below 50% - 60% of the Area Median Income.
