Local Housing Assistance Plan Public Meetings Continue
The City of Gainesville receives State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) Program funds from the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (FHFC). The purpose of the funding is to provide affordable housing assistance to Gainesville households earning very low-, low- and moderate-incomes.
To receive public input, the City of Gainesville is holding four public meetings (two which were held in December) to discuss its proposed three-year SHIP Local Housing Assistance Plans (LHAP). The LHAP will govern the SHIP Program’s affordable housing activities during the July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2023 time period. When complete, the LHAP will summarize affordable housing priorities, planned activities and funding levels anticipated for implementation during the three-year period, subject to actual allocation as approved by the Florida Legislature. The times and locations of the remaining meetings are:
Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 6 p.m.
Cone Park Library
2801 E. University Ave.
Thursday, Jan. 16 at 6 p.m.
Thomas Center, Building A
302 NE Sixth Ave.
Residents may also submit written comments about the LHAP to the City of Gainesville and the FHFC. Written comments should identify the author by name, address and affiliation or interest affected. Mail or email written comments to the City of Gainesville and/or the FHFC at:
