Homeowner Education Requirement
Anyone utilizing any of the San Francisco homebuyer assistance programs will be required to attend 6 hours of homeowner workshops after the purchase of their property. You’ll have 24 months from the date of your purchase to fulfill this requirement.

How it works:

  1. As a part of your closing costs, you’ll pay a $200 rebate-eligible deposit which will be held by HomeownershipSF.
  2. After closing escrow you can register for eligible workshops. Topics include: Home Maintenance, Refinance, Homeowners Associations (HOA’s) and Property and Income Taxes.
  3. Once you’ve completed 6 hours of eligible homeowner workshops, you’ll receive your rebate check in the mail a few weeks later.
