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 15,770 jobs and $1.569 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.
Florida Realtors ‘Rally in Tally’ for Homeownership!
The Florida Realtors, along with affordable housing and housing industry advocates, rallied in the Florida Capitol courtyard today to advocate for homeownership and priorities that would help rebound Florida’s real estate market and overall economy. Florida Realtors’ Senior Vice President of Public Policy, John Sebree, made the call to all supporters that “we cannot let the Florida Legislature sweep the housing trust funds” this year. Affordable housing is a priority of the Florida Realtors, who urged supporters to advocate for all monies collected from the Sadowski Affordable Housing Trust Fund to be used for their intended purpose – housing.
