About The BHC

​​The Broward Housing Council (BHC) was created by the Charter of Broward County, Florida, Section 11.07, approved by the electorate at a special referendum election held in conjunction with the General Election on November 4, 2008. 


 The purpose of the Broward Housing Council is to serve in an advisory capacity to the County Commission and to facilitate coordination between the County, municipalities, the business community and not-for-profit groups to address housing issues including, but not limited to, affordable housing, workforce housing and homelessness*. 


 All residents of Broward County should have opportunities to access safe, decent and affordable housing countywide which is the cornerstone for healthy, successful and sustainable communities.
