FHFC’s 2019-2020 Rental Funding Opportunities

The 2019 Florida Legislature provided funding for rental programs from the Affordable Housing Trust Funds, to be administered by the Florida Housing Finance Corporation. These resources include funding for the SAIL program, grant funding for housing for persons with developmental disabilities and special hurricane recovery funding for rental housing in hard-hit Hurricane Michael counties. Additionally, CDBG disaster recovery funding being administered by Florida Housing will be discussed. This session will cover all competitive rental programs, including the Housing Credit program, and the current timelines for allocating these housing funds during the 2019-2020 rental cycle. Overviews of the Request for Applications process and each funding opportunity will be explained in terms of funding available, target populations and geographic targeting throughout the state.
