Housing Mission

Housing is to be a catalyst for increasing access to and availability of quality housing, to improve and maintain the City’s Housing stock, to increase real estate values and ensure safe communities by optimizing resources and the collaboration of public private partnership and to ensure the greatest public benefit is achieved through the maintenance of City-owned real estate and equitable distribution of support. 

The City of Fort Myers considers the provision of housing as a basic human need, and therefore has assumed the responsibility to work toward increasing the availability of affordable workforce housing in the community. The Housing Division administers the housing programs for the City of Fort Myers. The City is committed to annually funding and managing these programs to provide access to attainable housing to the residents.
