  • Florida Housing’s Board Approves Using Resources for Hurricane Recovery
    Focus to be placed on housing crisis in Florida Keys

    TALLAHASSEE, FL
    - This morning the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) Board took action to direct available state and federal resources to assist the areas impacted by the recent hurricanes. The directive, led by Chairman Barney Smith of Jacksonville, will allow available multifamily resources, as permitted by law, to target impacted areas, with a priority to fund developments in the Florida Keys.  The Board unanimously approved the motion.

    Florida Housing staff will work in the coming weeks towards evaluating the resources that could be available in response to the directive and to the Corporation’s mission, while awaiting FEMA damage assessment data.  Recent applications, which include developments proposed in the Florida Keys, will be assessed to determine how many could be funded.

    “Florida Housing’s role in times of disaster is to provide long-term housing solutions to the state,” said Trey Price, executive director for Florida Housing. “Today, the Board expressed their commitment to those impacted by the storm and, as always, we are glad to be a part of the solution.”

    The motion is timely to the Legislative discussion in Tallahassee this week surrounding the impact to housing in the state from the recent storms. In addition, Florida Housing’s Executive Director and senior staff will be traveling to Monroe County next week to meet with state and local officials to assess damage and housing conditions there.

  • Event Detail:TALLAHASSEE, FL—Today, Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) launched its re-engineered website. The new site will deliver an enhanced user experience to better provide information about the Corporation and its many programs to the public.

    We are excited to see this website redevelopment project come to fruition today,” said Harold L. “Trey” Price, Executive Director for Florida Housing. “Staff worked long and hard to deploy a new website that integrates all areas of the Corporation to better showcase the good work that we do.

    Florida Housing’s website, www.FloridaHousing.org, features representations of the populations served by rental housing development and homeownership programs it administers. The site is organized in a more intuitive way that is much easier to navigate than its predecessor. For example, a prospective first-time homebuyer can visit the homepage and scroll down to the first colored block that says “Homebuyers and Renters.” The menu underneath says “Homeownership Programs Wizard,” which when clicked, immediately connects the user to the website application that helps them learn about the Corporation’s homebuyer programs, including available low-interest, fixed-rate mortgages, down payment/closing cost assistance, and lenders and Realtors® approved to work with Florida Housing’s programs.

    The site is also compliant with the federal laws and guidelines, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Users who are visually impaired can convert the site to high-contrast viewing, and the text can be sized up or down, per the needs of the user.

    Using the embedded Google® translation tool, the website can be translated into more than 30 languages at the click of a button. This is a very important feature for the diverse population of Florida, which includes citizens whose primary language is one other than English.

    “We live in a world where a strong presence on the Internet is so very important,” Price said. “The website is a significant part of our efforts to communication and interface with our stakeholder audiences. The improvements we have made will help Florida Housing keep pace with an ever-changing affordable housing market, while speaking to the needs of renters, prospective homebuyers and developers of affordable housing,” he said.

    Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) was created by the Legislature more than 35 years ago, to assist in providing a range of affordable housing opportunities for residents that help make Florida communities great places in which to live, work and do business. Our vision is to be recognized as an outstanding provider of innovative, measurable, data-driven and fiscally sustainable solutions that respond to the affordable housing challenges of our state. Today, Florida Housing continues its mission by increasing affordable housing opportunities and ensuring that its programs are well matched to the needs of those we serve. We cannot accomplish our mission alone. As such, we continue to work with local governments, nonprofits, elected officials and others to help spread the importance of affordable housing in Florida’s communities.

  • TALLAHASSEE - At its meeting this morning, Florida Housing Finance Corporation’s (Florida Housing) Board of Directors approved the appointment of Harold “Trey” Price as Executive Director for the Corporation. Price was presented to the Board by Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) Executive Director Cissy Proctor as her top choice for the position.
    “I am confident Trey Price’s experience and leadership are the right fit for Florida Housing Finance Corporation and its Board, as well as the State of Florida,” Proctor said. “I look forward to working with him to continue leading the agency in its mission to increase affordable housing opportunities in Florida.”
    Board Chairman Bernard “Barney” Smith said that Price has been a great partner with Florida Housing in lobbying for the allocation of housing trust fund dollars for affordable housing in the state. “The Board welcomes Trey to the Corporation and looks forward to his leadership as we continue to do our good work moving forward,” Smith said.
    Price launched Price Point Strategies, LLC, in 2015 after working more than 14 years at FloridaRealtors®—the state’s largest trade association—as a Public Policy Representative. In this capacity, he served as the liaison to Florida Housing, regularly communicating and interacting with leadership to help ensure issues regarding affordable housing were considered and included in critical discussions. In 2010, Price was instrumental in passing legislation that removed the cap on allocations from the state’s housing trust funds to finance affordable housing statewide. Additionally, he worked to pass dozens of notable and beneficial real estate-related laws, and prevent passage of laws that would damage Florida’s real estate industry and consumers.
    A second-generation Floridian, Price is a native of Okeechobee, and received a bachelor’s degree in political science and government from the University of Central Florida. He replaces former head of the Corporation, Steve Auger, who resigned in January.

  • Tallahassee, FL – Today, Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) announced that it will pursue a ban on affordable housing development company Pinnacle Housing Group (PHG) from applying for or participating in any funding programs administered by the Corporation. This comes following the filing of a settlement agreement in federal court by the United States Attorney (US Attorney) in which DAXC, LLC—a subcontractor company with most of the same principals as PHG—admitted to wrongdoing, resulting in the principals of the company knowingly obtaining excess federal funds from the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Program. The length of the ban is yet to be determined.

    “The Board has the administrative ability to ban principals and affiliated companies from receiving any federal or state funding from the Corporation in the event either has engaged in misrepresentation regarding our programs,” said Bernard “Barney” Smith, Chairman of the Board of Directors. “And, we expect to authorize the Corporation to take legal action against the principals of DAXC.”
    Regarding misconduct by low income housing developers, Assistant US Attorney Michael R. Sherwin said “such conduct will not be tolerated and those who abuse this critically important program will be prosecuted and punished.” Sherwin has acknowledged Florida Housing’s critical role in assisting the federal government in cases where there has been developer misconduct: “… Cooperation among state and federal agencies is not aspirational and will provide positive results when quality people are committed to a worthy mission,” Sherwin said.
    Per the filing, the US Attorney determined that DAXC was set up to inflate the construction costs of four low-income housing contracts from 2009 to 2011 to obtain $3.1 million of excess federal funds that went for the personal benefit of the principals associated with DAXC and its affiliates. Specifically, inflated amounts for concrete shell work were included in itemized construction contracts submitted to Florida Housing’s representatives.

    Starting in 2013, Florida Housing began prohibiting subcontractors affiliated with the developer or general contractor from involvement with developments awarded funding through the Corporation. Florida Housing is currently engaged in the rule-making process that governs funding programs it administers, including further strengthening this prohibition.
     2.To assist a homeowner(s) who has returned to work or recovered from unemployment or underemployment, the Mortgage Loan Reinstatement Payment (MLRP) Program will provide up to $25,000 as a one-time payment to help satisfy all or some of a delinquent first mortgage.
    “One of our main priorities is to ensure that all applicable federal and state rules and laws are followed,” said Ken Reecy, Florida Housing’s Interim Executive Director. “We worked closely to assist officials from the US Attorney’s office and appreciate their efforts to help identify misuse and abuse of a program that is vital to providing low-income citizens of this state with affordable options for safe and decent housing. Florida Housing is committed to our mission, and will not hesitate to impose sanctions against those individuals and entities who commit misrepresentation in our programs.”
    Per settlement documents, DAXC will pay a monetary penalty of $1,000,000 in addition to forfeiting more than $4.2 million to the federal government.
