THE HOUSING CRISIS IN OUR REGION

The lack of attainable, available housing plagued Central Florida well before COVID-19, and now, the crisis mounts every day. Almost 48% of people in the Orlando metro spend more than 30% of their income on housing, with some spending up to 50%. This leaves many precariously housed and one emergency away from losing their home. With even more than 1,500 people moving to the region every week, we can’t build our way out of this. That means we need long-range plans and solutions to make sure everyone in Central Florida has access to a home that fits their budget.

SOLUTIONS TO ADDRESS HOUSING

It's a crisis we can't become numb to, and it involves complex, multi-faceted solutions that people and organizations are working on every day. Hear from Brian Butler (housd), Shannon Nazworth (Ability Housing) and Rob Panepinto (Housing Impact Fund) on how it's going and what more needs to be done to ensure everyone has an affordable, accessible and safe place to call home.

If we create a whole spectrum of housing, we will make it easier for a whole spectrum of people to find a place they can live and thrive.

- Shannon Nazworth, Ability Housing

As Central Florida grows, many individuals and families live $400 away from homelessness and struggle with making ends meet—living paycheck to paycheck, unable to afford safe housing, reliable transportation, and healthy food. The Economic Stability Fund, part of Thrive Central Florida, focuses on changing that trajectory and will invest in correlating solutions.
