Building Blocks Fund

The Building Blocks Fund brings together private and nonprofit funders to finance the development of affordable and workforce housing. Miami-Dade County has secured $70 million in external commitments from nine separate funders to build and preserve affordable housing over the next three years. Additionally, the County’s Public Housing and Community Development Department (PHCD) will join the fund with an investment of $15 million toward affordable homeownership.
To maximize impact, the Building Blocks Fund (BBF) will:  
  • Form a new Advisory Council to provide recommendations on how resources should be deployed
  • Serve as leads to projects, sites, and developers after BBF funding is secured
  • Produce an annual report that monitors the progress of BBF activities 

Funders currently include:

The Building Blocks Fund is a part of Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava’s Building Blocks program for housing affordability, announced April 8, 2022, a comprehensive effort to increase the supply of housing units and strengthen protections for residents.
