Miami-Dade County, Florida

Neighborhood Housing Services of South Florida (NHSSF)
provides programs that promote and support homeownership
and neighborhood revitalization throughout Miami-Dade
and Broward Counties.

Partners in Progress

Through the Partners in Progress (PIP) initiative, NHSSF is expanding and accelerating its community quarterback efforts to align the work of multiple local partners in transforming Miami-Dade County’s 79th Street Corridor area from a fragmented set of residential, commercial, and industrial sites into a cohesive neighborhood with expanded commercial activity and increased employment opportunities

 

Revitalizing the 79th Street Corridor Area

The 79th Street Corridor is a community that faces significant economic and social challenges. However, its strategic location, within a large unincorporated area of Miami-Dade County, provides significant opportunities for economic development and community transformation. The area is the focus of a comprehensive community redevelopment planning and implementation process aimed at stimulating economic development and centered on the corridor’s ready access to bus and rail lines.

 

With expertise in housing and community development, NHSSF, in partnership with the 79th Street Corridor Neighborhood Initiative, is leading the effort to revitalize the 79th Street Corridor area by stimulating economic development that will bring businesses and residents to the area. Long-term goals are to improve quality of life for current neighborhood residents, support environmental improvements, and enhance economic development opportunities.

 

Serving in the community quarterback role, NHSSF is leading a coalition of social service and affordable housing organizations, local businesses and public sector agencies in efforts to leverage the Corridor’s current transit infrastructure to connect neighborhood residents to job opportunities in the South Florida region; expand affordable housing efforts; and utilize the Northside Shopping Center, which serves as both retail business and social service hub.  Additionally, NHSSF and its partners are seeking a Foreign Trade Zone designation for the Corridor, which will open the possibility for new businesses to locate in the corridor, creating new jobs and economic activity.
