What began as a countywide mandate to include affordable units in all new residential developments has morphed into a voluntary, incentive-driven program for builders who choose to address Miami-Dade County’s affordability crisis.

The workforce housing ordinance, which the County Commission passed Tuesday, rewards developers who include workforce housing units, or residences priced for families earning 60 percent to 140 percent of the area’s $48,100 median income.

If developers building 20 units or more set aside 5 percent for lower-income residents, they’ll be awarded with a 5 percent density bonus. The more affordable units they offer, the higher the density bonus.
