Community Development

Pasco County Community Development is seeking interested non-profits and affordable housing developers that may be interested in partnering with Community Development in the purchase and development of an affordable housing project. The potential site is located near the intersection of S.R. 54 and Grand Blvd. in Holiday. Interested organizations are invited to “walk the site” with Community Development staff and ask questions.  

Organizations should have the development experience and capacity to operate the project from the time of purchase to occupancy of residents. The project is expected to contain multi-family units with an emphasis on one bedroom/1 bath units through any or all of the following options:

  • Demolition and reconstruction
  • Renovation and rehabilitation of existing buildings  

The project will be funded in part through the use of State or Federal funding sources. Other funding sources may be considered. Occupancy will include but not limited to persons experiencing homelessness with referrals coming from the By Name List maintained by the Coalition for the Homeless of Pasco County.

Community Development has reserved Friday September 9, 2022, from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM for interested parties to visit the site. Please contact Jeff McKittrick with Community Development at (727) 834-3447 Ext 2316 or jmckittrick@pascocountyfl.net to confirm.
