LAND USE & NONPROFIT DEVELOPMENT
The Florida Housing Coalition provides in depth, focused training and technical assistance designed to build the capacity of nonprofit organizations with the goal of increasing the supply and quality of housing that is affordable throughout the state of Florida. As the success of nonprofits is hinged to solid relationships with local governments, FHC works closely with cities and counties to design and implement land use tools including regulatory incentives, inclusionary zoning, and surplus land policies.
Our experts support the Coalition’s Florida Community Land Trust Institute by assisting in the formation and ongoing operations of community land trusts and forging partnerships with local housing programs with the end goal to create an inventory of permanently affordable quality housing, both for rental and ownership.
