Miami-Dade Gets Its First Affordable Housing Plan That Includes COVID-19 Recovery

July 18, 2020

An ambitious new plan to address Miami-Dade’s growing housing affordability crisis is the first of its kind to incorporate the COVID-19 pandemic in its projections and solutions. The Miami-Dade Affordable Housing Framework, which was unveiled July 2, lays out a detailed plan of action to stave off the ballooning shortage of rentals and homes priced within reach of the 300,000 households — 35% of the county’s total households — that earn $35,000 or less per year.

Prepared by the nonprofit Miami Homes For All advocacy group and funded by JPMorgan Chase & Co., the plan uses data gathered by the University of Florida’s Shimberg Center for Housing Studies and input from community outreach efforts and meetings with more than 700 stakeholders conducted over the last two years.
