Due to the recent advice of the CDC regarding COVID-19, the Florida Housing Coalition will provide our in-person training and technical assistance using alternative means, such as a series of webinars and virtual meetings. The Catalyst in-person meetings such as site visits and workshops will not be held between now and May. We are currently working with FHFC on specifics and will quickly announce alternatives.

Using Surplus Lands for Affordable Housing
April 13 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
There is a wide disparity between how local governments are implementing the surplus lands law. Some local governments have enormous numbers of property in their inventory available for affordable housing but are stymied in terms of understanding the next steps for disposition. Some local governments are inclined to avoid the law and sell surplus property to use the funds for general revenue. This training will provide best practices to local governments, nonprofits, and local advocates to improve the local process for disposing of surplus lands for the benefit of affordable housing.
