Restoration and Revitalization

As a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), TSHA was requested by HUD to expand its five (5) year plan to include greater detail of needed capital improvements. TSHA’s architect firm conducted a 20% physical inspection of TSHA's properties to assist TSHA in the completion of a detailed physical needs assessment. TSHA’s architect prepared 30-50 year life projections as pursuant HUD requirements.

TSHA secured the services of an experienced real estate development firm to partner with TSHA in the redevelopment of public housing properties for which TSHA has or plans to submit tax credit applications with the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (FHFC). Applications were submitted in 2009 for Mango Circle (Eagle Ridge Estates) and for Lime/Boyer/Morgan (Oak Ridge Estates) sites. TSHA’ tax credit application for Oak Ridge Estates was accepted. TSHA will be making future applications based upon available funding. HUD Demolition/Disposition applications will be prepared and submitted as applicable.
