Housing Affordability Tracker

As a part of Mayor Daniella Levine Cava's Building Blocks Housing Summit, the Department of Public Housing and Community Development and The University of Miami Office of Civic and Community Engagement partnered to create the Housing Affordability Tracker. The tool is meant to monitor progress toward the Mayor's ambitious goal of 18,000 new and rehabilitated affordable/workforce housing units. These units, all intended to be in financial closing by the end of 2023, are a key component of Mayor Cava's Building Blocks for Housing Affordability Program.

Get Started

To get started, use the filters to identify and track affordable and workforce housing units in Miami-Dade County, proposed after November 2020, by status (pre-development, planning, under construction, completed and RFP) by type (new, renovation and new and renovation)  and by location (zip code, commission district and municipality).
Note: The Housing Affordability Tracker is best viewed on larger screens, such as those on a desktop computer. Visit the previous housing affordability tracker for data on affordable and workforce housing identifed as part of the 2019's “Closing in on 10,000 - A Housing Summit."


  • Planning Stage: Planning for the development is underway by the County and/or developer. Site control has been secured
  • Request for Proposal (RFP): A formal written solicitation issued by the County for the purpose of seeking response(s) from prospective developers. A development is in this stage if the RFP is in draft form, has been issued to developers, or is in negotiations or approval process
  • Pre-Development: Pre-Construction activities are underway, which may include environmental assessment, project design, and identification of financing for the development
  • Under Construction: Construction activities are underway
  • Construction Completed:  Construction activities completed
