As a task force, this group puts together meetings and events on relevant case studies to bring awareness and education on regional successes and challenges in affordable housing and revitalization.
The convergence of several factors over the last couple of decades has limited the housing options of many people with low and moderate incomes. Many are forced to pay a larger and larger share of their income for housing; to crowd into shared apartments, townhouses, or single family homes; or to find housing in distant suburbs located far from their jobs. Some are forced to combine all three options—to pay a lot to live in a crowded house in exurbia. It doesn’t have to be this way. Communities can support the development of housing for people and families at a variety of income levels.
In effort to ease this crisis, ULI North Florida’s members initiated an Affordable Housing & Revitalization Task force in 2017. The goal of this initiative is to bring awareness to ULI members on the development of Affordable Housing & Revitalization Initiatives, to introduce and recruit developers to ULI to help in their success.
This task force meets quarterly. If you are interested in getting involved or learning more about this initiative, please contact one of the chairs below.
