WEBINAR- Using Publicly Owned Lands for Affordable Housing
November 1, 2022 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
This webinar provides guidance on how the public sector, including school boards and Community Redevelopment Agencies, can use its land for affordable housing purposes. Publicly owned land is one of the most important tools a local government must address the affordable housing crisis. Some local governments have enormous numbers of properties in their inventory available for affordable housing but are stymied in terms of taking the next steps towards disposition. Some local governments are inclined to avoid Florida’s surplus lands laws and sell surplus property to use the funds for general revenue. This training will provide best practices to local governments, nonprofits, and local advocates to improve the local process for disposing of publicly owned land for the benefit of affordable housing.
