Housing = Jobs

The Sadowski Housing Coalition is a nonpartisan collection of 25 diverse statewide organizations that initially came together in 1991 to obtain a dedicated revenue source for Florida’s affordable housing programs, now known as the Sadowski Act.

Facing today’s tough economic times, the Sadowski Housing Coalition urges the Florida Legislature to use Florida’s housing trust fund monies solely for housing and help create more than 27,000 jobs and $3.43 BILLION in positive economic impact in Florida.

The faster Florida’s housing market recovers, the faster Florida’s economy recovers.  Housing dollars can put Florida’s out-of-work housing industry back to work repairing homes and improving the real estate market, and help reduce future state budget deficits.

Sadowski Housing Coalition Calls on Florida Legislature to Use Housing Trust Funds for Housing

SHIP Success Story: 

This short video tells the story of Ruth Young, a frail elderly homeowner who needed life safety repairs in order to stay in her home and continue to care for her adult son with special needs. SHIP provided that construction repair assistance.  If the housing trust funds are used for housing, SHIP success stories will no longer be a thing of the past, but of the present and future.
