Policy

SFCDC received an appointed seat to the Miami-Dade Affordable Housing Trust Fund Board of Trustees in 2016 to represent Miami-Dade’s community development sector.

Working alongside People Acting for Community (Miami-PACT) and Miami Homes for All and many other organizations and members of the community, SFCDC advocated for the creation of the Affordable Housing Trust Fund Revolving Loan Fund.
