In an effort to support the area’s affordable housing initiatives, Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony for Goldenrod Pointe Apartments, a 70-unit affordable housing complex located south of University Boulevard in Winter Park.

The complex has 20 percent of the units reserved for very low-income families and homeless individuals ready to re-enter the housing market. As tenant income increases, the rent will be adjusted and the special units will be released for other very low-income and homeless families to inhabit. The 14 set-aside units will have the standard rental housing hurdles removed, including application fees, deposits, credit assessments, etc. Referrals for the units come from in-network providers.

Orange County Government allocated a total of $2 million for the project. The County allocated $1 million of INVEST funds along with $1 million of State Housing Initiatives Program (SHIP) funds to this project. Orange County partnered with private sector developers, Atlantic Housing Partners and Southern Affordable Development, for the project.

Andy Lee, lead organizer of BOLD Justice, said, “The CCHD grants have allowed us to maintain and expand our staff and train up to 2,000 people. Without CCHD, we would not have been able to achieve any of our goals.”
