FCDA was in the forefront of gathering the information that was passed along to Congress to help preserve Community Development Block Grant and HOME funding in the early 1990’s. That data helped avert the elimination of HUD from the President’s Cabinet and shape U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) policy. The Association continues to participate in such responses to Congress, HUD and others regarding important community and economic development issues and particularly about Florida concerns.
