Tampa will take an active and aggressive role to ensure there are sufficient housing options for Tampanians at all income levels to afford by:
- Initiating the One Tampa Community Land Trust, which will serve as a new tool for the City to transition renters to homeowners and achieve a sustainable solution to housing affordability--all while preserving the character of our unique neighborhoods.
- Providing a realistic and attainable path to homeownership for our community through a wide range of programs, workshops, and services. By investing in these programs, we can make the dream of homeownership attainable for countless residents.
- Working with our partners to add a targeted 10,000 housing units by the end of 2027. In addition to developing new housing units, the City will also prioritize the maintenance and repair of existing affordable units.
Housing Affordability Advisory Team
On August 21, 2019, Mayor Castor kicked off the Housing Affordability Advisory Team. The challenge for this team was to recommend approaches to address housing affordability in Tampa and to integrate these recommendations with other Mayoral priorities.
