Affordable Housing Advisory Committee


The State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) Affordable Housing Advisory Committee (AHAC) is a Committee of at least eight, but not more than 11 private citizens who are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council. The committee members must consist of one representative from at least six of the categories listed in Florida Statute 420.9076 and one City Council Member.

Function of Committee

The AHAC Committee is tasked with reviewing possible new incentive strategies and evaluating the implementation of previously adopted incentive strategies to encourage or facilitate affordable housing while protecting the ability of property to appreciate in value. At a minimum, the AHAC must submit a report regarding these incentives every year. It must hold one public hearing to review the Committee’s report. The report must then be submitted to City Council and the Florida Housing Finance Corporation for approval. The report must be submitted to the Florida Housing Finance Corporation by December 31.

Meeting Schedule

The Committee will meet on the third Tuesday of the month, or as determined by the adoption of the Committee’s annual calendar.
