The rising cost of home has pushed the American dream of homeownership out of reach for far too many Jacksonville residents.

  • Home values, rents, and interest rates have skyrocketed.
  • The local housing supply is not meeting increased demand.
  • This leaves many families locked out of the wealth-generating and equalizing power of affordable homeownership.

It is time for action.

“Football is two things. It’s blocking and tackling.

I don’t care about formations or new offenses or tricks on defense. You block and tackle better than the team you’re playing, you win.”

Examples of Public-Private Partnerships

Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the country currently engaged in projects to make a sizable dent in the supply of affordable housing are supported by public-private partnerships. Blight is reduced, neighborhoods are improved, and housing stock is increased, along with the tax base.
