    Part 1 - Fostering Education & Understanding
    Through a case study of the 5-phase Housing Authority of the City of Fort Lauderdale redevelopment of the Northwest Gardens neighborhood, this presentation will highlight the creative and innovative efforts undertaken to foster acceptance and support. This $200 million public/ private partnership redevelopment of the Housing Authority's more than 50-year-old housing stock has resulted in a 660-unit redevelopment that is now affordable housing for more than 1,500 people.

    In 2012, the Northwest Gardens neighborhood received the first LEED-ND (neighborhood development) pre-certification in the state of Florida, second in the United States, and achieved LEED-ND Gold certification. Also, in 2012 Northwest Gardens was nationally honored with the US Environmental Protection Agency "Smart Growth Award for Equitable Development."

    Part 2 - Addressing Short-Term & Long-Term Issues
    Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans lacked stable, affordable housing. Now, the crisis has highlighted the social and economic costs of this crucial gap in the safety net. People living in poor-quality, overcrowded, or unstable housing - or without any home at all - cannot follow public health directives to safely "shelter in place." As a result, they are at greater risk of contracting the virus, along with other chronic illness.

    Many people in this population also face risks of instability. Housing costs are a major financial stressor for low-income households, who typically devote between a third and a half of their incomes to housing. Cost burdened households are at risk of losing their homes to eviction or foreclosure, especially during economic downturns. These households are also unable to accumulate savings that could help them weather temporary income losses like so many have seen during the pandemic.

    This presentation will present the short-term and long-terms issue when trying to provide decent, safe and affordable housing, and will outline 3 goals that should be part of policymaker's objectives: Increasing the amount of long-term affordable rental housing; protecting existing affordable housing from physical deterioration and financial insecurity; and supporting affordable housing projects currently in the pipeline that face financial obstacles due to the pandemic.

    Part 3 - The Array of Available Tools
    In order to understand how to approach the provision of affordable housing, a local government has to inventory what it has, understand what if wants (needs), and figure out how to get it. Defining the local level problem is the first step to being able to generate viable solutions, and analyze, evaluate and select the best alternatives.

    Among the array of available tools to be discussed will be housing preservation ordinances, tax strategies, and code enforcement. In addition, subsidies to individuals, housing choice vouchers, government construction and developer incentives will be reviewed.

    Zoning overrides, mandatory requirements, multiple units on a lot as-of-right (including accessory dwelling units), tiny houses, manufactured home neighborhoods, as well as "out of the box" proposals will be presented.
