At the last Real Estate and Housing subcommittee meeting (on Wednesday, Feb. 17th), subcommittee members heard from Jennifer Ferriol, Director of the Department of Housing & Community Development (HCD) at the City of West Palm Beach. She helped members gain a better understanding of HCD’s menu of services, incentives, and projects.
Subcommittee members learned that HCD offers a Housing Assistance & Development Incentive, through which the agency provides fee reductions, loans, and grants to leverage private and other public investment. It also offers assistance for aspiring and new homeowners. Ferriol also elaborated on some of HCD’s current and past projects, such as the Georgia Gardens Apartments, Dr. Alice Moore Apartments, Home of Tamarind, 575 Rosemary Workforce project, to name a few.
Ferriol also described the Housing Stabilization program, which is designed to provide a one-time financial assistance to families and individuals. If you’re interested in learning more about these programs, check out the HCD website.
