Full report in PDF format


  • Consistent with our recommendations, the 1998 Florida Legislature did not re-enact the Community Development Corporation Support and Assistance Program, which sunset on June 30, 1998.  Although the program was appropriated funding in Fiscal Year 1998-99, it did not receive an appropriation in Fiscal Year 1999-2000.  Funding for the program is also not included in the proposed House and Senate budgets for Fiscal Year 2000-01.
  • Funding previously appropriated to the program remains in the State Housing Trust Fund and the General Revenue Trust Fund for appropriation to other programs.  The Department of Community Affairs continues to monitor community development corporations (CDCs) that have outstanding administrative grant awards and economic development and affordable housing loans.
  • The department is awaiting legislative authorization to use collected loan funds for other purposes.
