Rental Housing Development

With HOME funds provided by the City of Hialeah, the Hialeah Housing Authority is currently developing 83 units of affordable housing to increase the amount of rental housing available to low-income elderly residents of Hialeah. Over the years, the City of Hialeah has utilized HOME funds for the construction of numerous rental housing buildings, which continue to operate and provide safe, decent, and affordable housing for the elderly residents of Hialeah.

Rental Housing Rehabilitation

The City of Hialeah is utilizing HOME funds to administer rental housing rehabilitation to four city-owned elderly housing properties: Villa Aida, Villa Esperanza, Seminola MLK, and a 29-unit building. Villa Aida, which houses 57 units of elderly-occupied housing; Villa Esperanza, which houses 32 units of elderly-occupied housing; Seminola MLK, which houses 8 units of elderly-occupied housing; and a 29-unit elderly-occupied building are in the process of receiving repairs to augment the buildings' energy efficiency and improve the quality of life for their residents.

CHDO Development

15% of the City of Hialeah's annual HOME allocation must be reserved for use by a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) interested in producing eligible affordable housing. The City recommends any non-profit organization interested in partnering for the development of CHDO housing should review the CHDO Qualification Information Sheet and verify their eligibility to receive HOME CHDO reserve funds.
