Public Housing Authorities play an extensive role in providing affordable housing resources to lower income households across our state.  In addition to subsidy administration and housing counseling, these public and private development professionals bring innovative ideas maximizing the PHA’s contributions to Florida’s affordable housing stock.  This forum invites attendees to learn from some of the most active and forward-thinking PHAs and their partners throughout the state as presenters discuss best practices in affordable housing development through a PHA lens. With the deficit of affordable housing in mind, presenters will share their experiences of developing partnerships for housing development that address unmet public needs and private interests to achieve goals and support the mutual interests of both the PHA and private sector development partners.  Revitalization of historically underserved communities, including within the urban core, entices PHAs and private developers to work together to create mixed income communities supported by an environment of healthy living and employment opportunities.  The 2023 legislation to increase the production of affordable housing, provides PHAs and their private sector partners with greater opportunities to improve their communities through new construction, redevelopment, and rehab projects, increasing access to housing for the most vulnerable community members.
