The Sadowski Housing Coalition is a nonpartisan collection of more than 30 diverse statewide organizations that initially came together in 1991 to obtain a dedicated revenue source for Florida’s affordable housing programs, now known as the Sadowski Act.
Facing today’s tough economic times, the Sadowski Housing Coalition urges the Florida Legislature to use Florida’s housing trust fund monies solely for housing and help create more than 30,000 jobs and more than $4 BILLION in positive economic impact in Florida.**

MANY Voices, ONE Message, ALL Housing Funds
Become a Sadowski Affiliate- Email Johnitta Wells at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Sadowski Coalition is a collection of about 30 statewide organizations which agree that the state and local housing trust funds should be used for only one thing: Florida’s housing programs. There are many local and regional organizations that also agree with this premise.
If you are with a local or regional organization and would like to be a part of this collective state message, you can join as a Sadowski Affiliate. There is no fee for becoming a Sadowski Affiliate- only the mutual agreement of understanding between all Sadowski Coalition and Affiliate members to bring a cohesive message to the Florida Legislature that all the state and local housing trust fund monies be used for existing housing programs.
As a Sadowski Affiliate, you can participate in regular conference calls regarding issues related to the housing trust funds and assist in the effort to have all of Florida’s housing trust funds used for housing.
The faster Florida’s housing market recovers, the faster Florida’s economy recovers. Housing dollars can put Florida’s out-of-work housing industry back to work repairing homes and improving the real estate market, and help reduce future state budget deficits.
The Orlando Sentinel published an Op-Ed on November 7, 2018, that emphasizes our ONE Message and encouraged the Governor-Elect to appropriate all the housing trust funds for housing. Click here to read the Orlando Sentinel Op-Ed.
