Multi-Family Affordable Rental Housing

The Department of Community Development provides federal, state, and/or local funding to private developers to build affordable housing units within the limits of the City of Miami. The City funds a portion of the total cost of the project and in return the developer provides a pre-determined number of affordable rental housing units to be rented to low-to-moderate income families. The number of affordable housing units in a project is based on the amount of subsidy provided by the City. This funding allows developers to offer city residents with brand new or fully reconditioned apartment units at affordable rents.
