Affordable Housing : High Priority for Miami-Dade County Commission

Crea�ng affordable housing opportuni�es in Miami-Dade County is one of my earnest goals .
In well documented reports , the need for housing s�ll exists na�onwide . As homelessness soars and public housing wai�ng lists become overloaded , policymakers in our state and federal
government are met with challenges . Eachyear , dollars for homeless opera�ons and subsidies for building housing are further reduced , leaving local governments to think crea�vely and strategically plan for housing solu�ons .
It is no secret that Miami-Dade County is one of the most cost-burdened places to live in this country . I have worked extremely hard to set the atmosphere for affordable housing to be built in my district so current and future residents can have new and reasonably priced places to live in both rentals and homeownership .
It is no secret that Miami-Dade County is one of the most cost-burdened places to live in this country .
Addi�onally , through Miami-Dade County ’ s infill housing programs we have an approved pool of developers building housing for homeownership throughout the county , crea�ng new , livable spaces for families . Through other contractual rela�onships with the County , we have worked with affordable housing developers to make apartment living seem less congested , more family friendly with many ameni�es , and close to viable modes of transporta�on . However , I realize there is s�ll more to do .
My colleagues and I are working toward including workforce housing in our efforts to address the housing concerns for those incomes somewhere in the middle . The County has added incen�ves and addi�onal funding to a�ract developers to build for this popula�on . There are no stones we will leave unturned while making sure there are reasonable next steps for developing an almost “ ladder-system ” to provide housing op�ons for all income levels and needs .
