The 2018 Florida Legislature again replenished important funding pots from the State Housing Trust Fund, administered by the Florida Housing Finance Corporation. These resources include funding for the SAIL program, with a set-aside for persons with a disabling condition, and grant funding for housing for persons with developmental disabilities. These and other rental programs such as the Workforce Housing initiative and the HOME program will be discussed. This session will cover the competitive Housing Credit program and the current timelines for allocating these 2018-2019 affordable housing allocations. Each of these funding opportunities will be explained in terms of the amount of money available, the target populations, and what rules will be followed for the individual requests for applications (RFA) that will guide where and how these monies are to be used throughout the State.
