    Affordable Apartment Search


    Search for an apartment with FloridaHousingSearch.org

    In its on-going efforts to respond to housing needs, Florida Housing has developed an easy-to-use searchable website of available affordable rental units throughout the state. Currently, Florida Housing-funded developments may be found in most counties. There is no cost to search for housing, and no cost to the owners to list their rental units.


    Using FloridaHousingSearch.org for Adult Family Care and Assisted Living Facilities


    Florida Housing Search also helps consumers locate the most appropriate facilities to provide care for their loved ones. Information on this system comes from the state-run licensing database, and facility representatives can add details about amenities and other services to help individuals make informed care decisions. There is also information on the site about licensing types and subsidies.
