The City of Orlando is working on launching a new “Building Permit Fee Rebate” program for certified affordable housing projects.

The Certified Affordable Housing Projects Pilot Program is meant to incentivize and promote the construction of affordable housing units within the City of Orlando by dedicating a portion of funds to refund/reduce building fees that meet the following standards.

  • Each project must be certified as “Affordable” by the City’s Housing and Community Development Department.
  • Each project must commit at least 20% of its units to Affordable Housing to qualify.
  • The amount of the rebate is based on the percentage of dedicated units – projects with 20%-59% certified affordable units will get a 50% reduction on associated permit fees. Projects where above 60% of the units are certified affordable will receive a 100% reduction on qualifying permit fees.

The City will also allow for rebates to previously-permitted Affordable Housing developments that were granted final permits and approvals since 2019.
