The Mayor’s Infill Housing Phase II lots have been awarded! On June 22nd, 14 residential, single-family lots were awarded live through a random, digital lottery process to 11 unique, qualified developers, which resulted from a robust RFP process. The awarded lot list is provided below. Over the next two months, HCD staff will be working with those developers on various aspects of the development process to proceed with activating these lots and ensuring that they are sold to income eligible homebuyers. 

In addition to providing the lots to qualified developers, the City will also be contributing $1.1 million of revolving loan funds towards the program offered at a 0% interest loan towards the development of the home. Units created under this program will increase the affordable housing inventory available within the City of Tampa. 

Please contact Marquaz McGhee at (813) 274-7938 or e-mail at marquaz.mcghee@tampagov.net if you have any questions.
