Hollywood, FL – The smiles on the faces of the families who just received a new home says it all. Thanks to the Southeast Florida Community Development Fund, Minority Builders Coalition and Broward County Government, four families who are first time minority homebuyers were able to purchase single-family homes in Fort Lauderdale.
At a house warming celebration on September 30th in the Franklin Park section of Fort Lauderdale, the first time home buyers were happy to have a place to call home. Brian Johnson, President of Minority Builders Coalition hosted the event and commended Broward County Government and the Southeast Florida Community Development Fund for their financing and community support to help first time minority homebuyers acquire homes for their families.

The SFCDFI contracts with the South Florida Regional Planning Council for lending expertise, loan management, and administrative and staff support.
Jeff Tart, Senior Loan Officer of the Southeast Florida Community Development Fund said, “The affordable housing crisis in South Florida continues to be exacerbated by the further reduction in land availability and continued escalation in the high cost of living for South Florida residents.
