AFFORDABLE HOUSING

PACT’s Affordable Housing Program

 

Problem Statement: Miami has been among the top three cities with the most cost-burdened renters every year since 2007 and we have topped the list four times in the last eight years.   Over the past decade, construction has focused on building housing towers for Capital Flight, for speculation, and for seasonal second homes.  But we must also build housing to meet the needs of low- and moderate-income families, for our elderly and for those who live and work in our community.  We face an Affordable Housing crisis.   

 

Background:

●     250,000 families in Miami Dade more than thirty percent of their income on housing

●     One in three renters is severely cost burdened paying more than fifty percent of their income on housing

●     On average, Miami-Dade County residents spend forty-three percent of their income on rent

●     Miami has been among the top three cities with the most cost-burdened renters every year since 2007 and we have topped the list four times in the last eight years

●     That means, families, the elderly, single parents and young professionals cannot afford to live in our community
