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.
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.
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.
