Florida Supportive Housing Coalition’s Community Dialogue Technical Assistance Program (Community Dialogue) is an opportunity for a county or other local community to learn first-hand from successful developers how to develop and manage supportive housing.

Communities participating in a Community Dialogue receive the following:

  • Organizational support for the development of a local agenda, marketing flyers, and invitations
  • An inventory of government and other resources available to their community
  • A researched estimate of the community’s affordable housing needs for persons with special needs or experiencing homelessness
  • In-depth review of affordable housing development funding sources and how they support housing for persons with disabilities and special needs, and individuals and families that are homelessness
  • An evaluation of startup costs, staffing, and potential funding sources for supportive housing development and support services
  • A facilitated planning discussion to assess current capabilities, partners, and missing partners to strengthen local collaboration needed for success
  • Development of a Steering Committee
  • A written Action Plan developed by the Community Dialogue Technical Assistance staff
