Sadowski Coalition Affiliate
FCEH is a Sadowski Coalition affiliate, one of 30 statewide organizations that agree that the state and local housing trust funds should be used for only one thing: Florida’s housing programs.
The State Housing Initiatives Partnership program (SHIP), provides funds directly to local Governments for eligible activities included in their Local Housing Assistance Plan. We strongly encourage our members to participate in the planning for affordable housing.
The State Apartment Incentive Loan Program (SAIL) provides low-interest loans on a competitive basis to affordable housing developers each year. FCEH continues to advocate for the homeless and special needs set-asides. FCEH also advocates for RFP policies for housing projects to have minimum requirements for application. Ensuring access to affordable housing by allowing those with zero income, those with poor credit or eviction histories, or those with criminal backgrounds is an initiative of FCEH to allow those experiencing homelessness to move into housing.
