The Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF) is pleased to announce that the Golden State Acquisition Fund (GSAF) has successfully financed its first project with a loan to Preservation Partners Development (PPD) and Clifford Beers Housing to preserve 90 units of affordable senior housing. The $9.2 million acquisition loan, originated by Enterprise Community Loan Fund, enabled PPD to acquire Banning Villa Apartments in Wilmington, California. PPD specializes in rehabilitation and preservation of affordable housing throughout California and will conduct extensive rehabilitation of the property. All 90 units will remain affordable to residents earning up to 60% AMI. LIIF is the Administrative Agent for the program.

LIIF will lead a session on the newly launched GSAF at the Housing California Annual Conference in Sacramento, CA on April 16-18. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn how to access funds from GSAF, including key information on what types of projects can receive GSAF financing and how to apply for funds from originating lenders.
