    About Us

     

    This mission of the Florida Housing Finance Corporation is to help our fellow Floridians obtain safe, decent housing that might otherwise be unavailable to them. Florida Housing’s staff and Board of Directors are continuing to work to increase affordable housing opportunities for Floridians, ensure that Florida Housing’s programs are well matched to the housing needs of Floridians, and communicate the importance of affordable housing to Florida’s communities.

     

    Increasingly, Florida Housing is working with its sister agencies and other stakeholders to provide supportive housing opportunities for people with special needs, such as elders, youth aging out of foster care, and people with disabilities. Supportive housing refers to housing in which services for those residents are matched with the housing they need, whether rental or homeownership. Because Florida Housing’s statutory role is to provide financing for housing only, coordination with service agencies at the state and local level is required for an effective response.

     

    Since 2001, Florida Housing has offered funding for a series of demonstrations to learn more about the financing needs of housing targeted to those residents. Over recent years, we have initiated several new projects to further our efforts, specifically our Link Strategy (linking households receiving supportive services with housing) and our Universal Design requirements in newly constructed units. You can read more in Serving Special Needs and Universal Design and Accessibility in Housing.
