Governor Signs State Budget with $192.6 Million in Affordable Housing Funds

The budget for fiscal year 2019-2020 provides $192.6 million for Florida's affordable housing programs, which is $68.9 million more than last year's budget. The only change with regard to affordable housing funding from the budget that was passed by the House and Senate is that the governor vetoed a line item that would have provided $8 million in additional funds for Jacksonville's Urban Core Workforce Housing project.
Affordable housing allocations include:
     •  $115 million for affordable housing initiatives in Hurricane Michael impacted areas.
     •  $77.6 million for affordable housing initiatives statewide, which includes funding for the State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) Program and the State Apartment Incentive Loan (SAIL) Program.

PSC Name Change Approved, Now FSC

The Product/Service Council is now the Florida Suppiers Council after the FAA Board of Directors voted to approve the name change and to amend the FAA By-Laws to reflect the new name at the May 23 board meeting at the Hilton Melbourne Beach Oceanfront.

Officers of the old Product/Service Council had proposed the name change to align better with NAA's National Suppliers Council and to better represent the council's role.  





Lead Retrieval Available for 2019 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show

Lead retrieval is available for exhibitors at the 2019 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show. The two options can be purchased at a pre-conference discount. Onsite at the conference rates will increase $50. 

- BC600 Hand-Held Device Advance purchase: $200; Onsite purchase: $250

- KLEERLeads Mobile Advance purchase: $150; Onsite purchase: $200

The versatile app enables trade show exhibitors to capture, qualify and follow up on leads or surveys directly from their smartphones or tablets and then securely access this data in real time from any location. With KleerLeads Mobile, it’s easy to add custom qualifiers such as "ready to purchase" or "follow up in two months" as well as personalized freeform notes. 

Exhibitors can even attach the prospect’s photo, business card or other information to use during follow-up. With KleerLeads, not only can exhibitors capture leads on the trade show floor, but they can also use their mobile devices to capture leads anywhere they encounter attendees, such as at hotels, social functions and more. 

NOTE: Lead retrieval device rental/mobile app purchases are available to 2019 FAA trade show exhibitors only.

Learn more about both options at www.faahq.org/leadretrieval and then reserve yours today.

Stand Out with an Enhanced Business Listing

A more robust and comprehensive supplier directory has replaced the old PSC Buyer's Guide, which in many cases only included one company under a specific category. In the new digital directory, every supplier member has at least a basic listing with contact information and has the opportunity to purchase an enhanced listing for $250. The enhanced listing includes premium placement, a company description, contact information, a link to your website and social media feeds.

Check out the new FAA Supplier Directory, a valuable resource for apartment communities and management companies seeking products and services.
