Affordable housing is still an issue in our county. Funding was approved for $12.9 million in gap financing to fund the development of 340 new affordable homes in the cities of Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood and Lauderhill. Since 2018 the County Board has allocated more than $100 million to 27 projects which has created more than 2,500 affordable homes in our community.
