Green Communities

The good folks at the Florida Community Loan Fund (FCLF) have been working hard on a collaboration with the Florida Green Building Coalition and Enterprise Community Partners to form Green Communities

The Community Loan Fund in an intermediary lender in Orlando. Its focus now includes making affordable housing "green." Their philosophy is that lower cost housing and energy efficiency should not be mutually exclusive. The Florida Green Communities has resources that assist developers who are committed to building green, affordable housing. They provide grants, technical assistance and flexible low-cost financing (which includes below-market rate loans for land acquisition, pre-development and construction). They can also participate as a partner in Low Income Housing Tax Credit projects in Florida by providing competitively priced equity.
