About DALP funding

Each household can only reserve funds under one program (General, First Responders, or Educators) if selected.

First responders or SFUSD educators can still be considered for funding under the General DALP list if they are not selected under FRDALP or Educators-DALP. You must meet the income and first-time homebuyer requirements of the funding source you use.
