Everyone deserves a safe and sustainable place to call home.
A number of municipalities around the state have started to enact smart solutions to protect the human right to safe and affordable housing. From enforcing tenant rights, expanding eviction notice periods, banning eviction discrimination to creating true affordable housing, this toolkit empowers you to center the residents encountering and living this housing crisis and to enact policies that will strengthen access to safe and affordable housing in your communities while protecting renters’ rights.
The Local Power & Justice Housing Policy Toolkit is for local elected officials and community advocates, providing a menu of possible policy solutions to the housing crisis we’re experiencing across Florida. It was developed by Community Justice Project and Local Progress Florida, and informed by this memo analyzing the landscape of state preemption of local housing law in Florida produced by Local Progress Impact Lab and Local Solutions Support Center.
