Sadowski Coalition Affiliate
FCEH is a Sadowski Coalition affiliate, one of 30 statewide organizations which 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. Including allowing those with zero income, those with poor credit or eviction histories, or those with criminal backgrounds is key to moving those experiencing homelessness into housing.
