Homestead Community Redevelopment Agency Rocks the Block and Breaks Ground on New Homes

People digging shovels into dirt for groundbreaking

The Homestead Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) kicked off its Southwest Neighborhood New H.O.M.E (Home Ownership Made Equitable) Initiative and Rock the Block neighborhood beautification on SW 6th Street. On Saturday, August 29, 2023, dozens of volunteers, city employees, and elected officials gathered to clean up SW 6th Street from 6th Avenue to 10th Avenue. Participants collected trash, installed new mailboxes, painted fences, and planted trees and flowers. Sidewalks and driveways were also pressure cleaned and the street will be repaved in the coming months.  Several homes in the area will also be receiving a fresh coat of paint, thanks to the CRA.

Saturday also marked the groundbreaking of four new homes that are part of the Southwest Neighborhood New H.O.M.E Initiative which promotes affordable homeownership as a way to create a thriving community and a gateway to building generational wealth.  Qualified buyers will receive $20,000 in downpayment assistance from the CRA and education about additional programs available for assistance.  The homes will be constructed through Minority Builders Coalition (MBC), a nonprofit developer, and other partners such as South Florida Regional Planning Council, Housing Foundation of America, LHP Construction & Management, Corp., and Sagoma Construction.

For information about the new homes contact Nancy at Housing Foundation of America at 954-923-5001.
