After thousands of your peers reached out, the Legislature reduced the initial 66% cut of affordable housing funds to 50%. That’s encouraging news, but it’s not nearly enough to help address Florida’s growing housing crisis.
The perfect storm of record-high housing prices, a rapidly growing population and a severe lack of housing inventory is making it harder than ever to find affordable housing in our state.
Affordable housing is a priority for Florida’s essential workers. It is a priority for the elderly on fixed incomes. And it is a priority for hard-working Floridians looking to purchase their first home. Now is not the time to permanently take money away from programs that can help Floridians achieve the American dream of homeownership.
Help support affordable housing by telling our lawmakers to use the housing trust funds for housing!
