Office of Housing Advocacy

The Office of Housing Advocacy (OHA) acts as a clearinghouse and coordinator to address issues of affordable housing and landlord and tenant rights with a focus on assisting families and individuals' efforts to obtain housing related resources. OHA collaborates with County departments, developers, nonprofits and other community stakeholders to formulate policies and initiatives that will expand affordable housing and prevent resident displacements. The Office consists of a director, a tenant advocate and a housing advocate.

The Tenant’s Bill of Rights ordinance was passed by the Board of County Commissioners on May 3, 2022 to assist renters with safe, stable and affordable rental housing, and served to formalize Miami-Dade County's Office of Housing Advocacy.

The Housing Advocacy hotline, 786-469-4545, is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m to 5 p.m., and closed on weekends and County holidays.

The Notice of Tenant Rights is now available under the resources for Landlords.
