Updates About Mayor Cava’s FY Budget

Happy Weekend Jorge Luis!

We hope this brief email finds you well!

In Miami-Dade news, today Mayor Daniela Levine Cava released her second County proposed budget for fiscal year 2022-23, and discussed “how she is taking a broad-picture approach – balancing short and long-term challenges by both providing immediate relief to residents struggling with rising costs and investing critical funds in solutions to the housing crisis.

Here are our notes of key highlights:

  • The first property tax break in 10 years, 1% reduction for all 4 millage rates – county wide, unincorporated area (umsa), library and fire.
  • A total of $500 million for the expansion of housing including affordable, rental and homeownership.
  • Expansion of Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) funded by federal dollars, $113million
  • Homeless Trust: Renovation of facilities to provide services for senior citizens affected by homelessness.
  • Funding $15 million for small businesses.
  • Funding the Smart Plan (expanding public transit corridors).
  • Funding Vision Zero to redesign streets to make them safer for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Funding Protection of the Environment: the beaches, bay and accelerating the conversion from septic to sewer.
