Feedback form is now closed.
Join the Florida Housing Coalition’s Affordable Housing Development Team as we explore nonprofit capacity building through FHFC’s Predevelopment Loan Program (PLP) and discuss current trends in development with some of Florida’s leading nonprofit developers.  This symposium will highlight important aspects of the development process and the goal of the expanding the capacity of nonprofit developers and increasing the number of affordable housing units across Florida. The panelists will share their experiences as PLP participants.   This training session will also provide information about missing middle development, as this classification of housing requires adapting skills and knowledge of land use, zoning, design, legal, financing structures, HOA requirements, and other unique attributes associated with attached dwellings to help increase the housing stock while creating more housing choice in walkable, urbanized communities near key community elements.
