A recent report entitled “Miami’s Housing Affordability Crisis” notes that our affordable housing challenges are among the worst in the nation. The Workforce Housing Committee looks to promote the enhancement of affordable housing stock, a crucial component of Miami’s growing world-class status. The Committee advocates for important issues, but also works to find creative solutions to the problem.
 

MISSION
The Workforce Housing Committee looks to find solutions to the high-cost and low-availability of housing in Miami-Dade.  Partnering with nonprofit organizations, banks and businesses, universities and government, the Committee works to find ways to secure affordable, workforce housing through advocacy and creative problem-solving.
