Affordable Housing

The Orlando Regional REALTOR® Foundation (ORRF) works to provide leadership and resources to improve affordable housing outcomes in Central Florida.

Through this program, 24 single-family homes have been developed and sold to first-time income-qualified residents. A selected number of homes are part of the Hannibal Square Community Land Trust, the first owner-occupied land trust in Florida. In addition, six ADA compliant, mortgage free homes were built and donated to disabled veterans and their families through the Heroes' Commons project. This program has also served as the design partner for other projects that have built more than 65 single-family homes in the rural areas of Orange County, Florida.

Through community partners, families participate in HUD certified financial literacy education designed to improve the likelihood of successful, self-sufficient homeownership.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In an effort to address the critical need for affordable housing, the Foundation’s long term goals include the following: 1) Continue to provide quality, attractive, sustainable housing for Central Florida's workforce, as well as other residents such as veterans; 2) Develop an ongoing fundraising plan that ensures the financial strength of the Foundation and includes, among other things, endowments and gifts of private property, etc.; 3) Expand the awareness of the Foundation between Realtor members and increase the recognition of Realtors as local experts on real estate in Central Florida and as a primary community partner for housing initiatives in our community; and 4) Pursue policy initiatives and educate/inform members of housing issues via its partnership with the Nonprofit Housing Roundtable of Central Florida.

The Orlando Regional Realtor Foundation will employ the following strategies to accomplish the previously stated goals: 1) Housing - Continue to evaluate the need for affordable housing amongst residents within Central Florida and coordinate the development of affordable housing projects to meet these needs, such as the recently completed Heroes’ Commons at Jefferson Park project; 2) Fundraising - The Foundation is working on developing a long-term fundraising strategy to not only help individuals, but to also better position the organization for the development of future housing projects. 3) Awareness - Through the development of projects and educational programs, the Foundation will continue to utilize the support and services of its local Realtor base. As more members work directly on these projects/programs, the awareness of the organization will expand exponentially; 4) Donor Participation - Expanding the participation of donors begins with their participation in projects/programs close to their hearts.

The Foundation was founded and continues to enjoy the support of The Orlando Regional Realtor Association (ORRA). ORRA is one of the largest local trade associations in the state of Florida, with more than 19,000 members in Orange, Seminole, and the surrounding counties. ORRA is composed of Realtors who are involved in residential and commercial real estate as brokers, salespeople, property managers, appraisers, counselors, and others who are engaged in all aspects of the real estate industry. Within the confines of the Foundation, organizational capabilities are centered on key staff and a wide range of supporting partnerships that vary depending on the project/program. The Chief Executive Office is Cliff Long. Mr. Long’s primary duties include oversight of senior management activities to ensure adherence with Foundation's goals and objectives, as well as policies and fiscal compliance.

The 2023 Strategic Plan was recently adopted and we have yet to begin the analysis phase.

The Foundation has successfully accomplished its
long-term goals of increasing awareness of the need for affordable housing and
meeting this need through projects such as Art in Architecture and Heroes’
Commons, and most recently with its partnership with the Nonprofit Housing
Roundtable of Central Florida.  When
looking ahead, the Foundation will continue to spearhead similar developments,
but on a more frequent basis and on a larger scale.  With respect to the organization, the
Foundation is working to broaden its source of support from primarily Realtors
to the greater community.  This will be
done by not only continuing to work with existing partners, but by seeking to expand
both partnerships and funders as new projects/programs are introduced.
