Miami Homes For All seeks to preserve existing affordable homes; create processes for the strategic deployment of publicly owned land; and identify and raise new capital for development.

The 3C initiative helps teams strengthen local community investment ecosystems and advance racial equity through safe, affordable housing.

Using the Center for Community Investment’s Capital Absorption Framework, multisector stakeholders in Miami collaborate to achieve ambitious results that go beyond individual projects to systems change. The three-year initiative is working to scale affordable housing and redress the ways structural racism has shaped American housing systems with dramatically negative consequences for many communities of color.

Preserving Affordable Homes

Preserving small and medium multifamily rental buildings is critical to ensuring affordable housing for all. MHFA and its partners launched the Greater Miami Housing Alliance (GMHA) to ensure that publicly owned land creates more affordable housing.

Raise capital to invest in resilience upgrades while sustaining affordability.

Coordinate services and increase racial equity in the access to rental assistance.

Partner with public officials to change the process of deploying public land so that it’s more strategic, transparent, and beneficial to disadvantaged residents.

Launch a pilot program to support community engagement and organizing by local leaders.

As of 2020, Miami-Dade’s affordable housing shortage totaled almost 165,000 homes for those earning less than 80% AMI.

In 2020, MHFA published a plan to address the housing shortage: the Miami-Dade Affordable Housing Framework.
