Workforce Housing

The Mission of the Housing Solutions Committee is to enhance Miami’s world class status by providing all residents the opportunity to obtain and sustain an equitable socio-economic lifestyle by being able to sustainably afford a place to live. The goal is to increase the supply of affordable housing stock for the continuum of housing needed in Miami-Dade County from extremely low-income households, low- to moderate-income households, seniors and young professional households (workforce housing).
