Marion County: Long Term Partnerships for Permanent Affordability

Through our collective efforts, we’re making a tangible impact on housing affordability and stability across Florida. From expanding access to affordable housing to promoting equitable development practices, each initiative we undertake brings us one step closer to our vision of a housing-secure Florida for all.

Marion County has been a transformative journey—one fueled by dedication, collaboration, and a shared commitment to fostering thriving communities. Since our partnership commenced in 2017, we’ve embarked on a mission to redefine what housing means for the residents of Marion County. With a vision that extends far beyond mere shelter, we’ve set out to create a landscape where every individual has the opportunity to flourish, to build roots, and to call Marion County home.

Today, as we stand on the cusp of a new chapter, we reflect on the progress we’ve made and the challenges that lie ahead. Our journey is far from over, but with each passing year, we inch closer to our shared vision—a Marion County where housing is not just a basic necessity but a cornerstone of opportunity and prosperity for all.
