Affordable Housing Initiative
Geared toward stimulating the development of units that are affordable to extremely low and very low income households, MHFA is working with cross-sector stakeholders to create blueprints for housing affordability at the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County. This includes elected officials, government agencies, nonprofits, developers, philanthropy, banks, and residents. The idea of the blueprints is to: arrive at a shared community goal for the number of units to be created or preserved in the next five years; identify the pipeline pathways; and, identify the policies that will enable us to get to that goal. In addition, Miami Homes For All is working to create a plan that addresses the preservation of subsidized and naturally occurring affordable housing in Miami-Dade County as a pipeline to meet our community's housing needs.
Youth Homelessness Initiative
Through community collaboration Miami-Dade County has spearheaded an effort to create a locally designed, comprehensive system-of-care to prevent and end youth experiencing homelessness. Over 100 agencies come together to form The HOMY Collective: Helping Our Miami-Dade Youth. Miami Homes For All serves as the backbone support to HOMY, which is composed of four committees and a Youth Voice Advisory Council focusing on core outcomes for youth: Stable Housing; Well-Being; Permanent Connections; and, Education and Employment.
