Surplus Property Donation Program
According to Section 125.379, Florida Statutes, and Chapter 122, Ordinance Code, the City of Jacksonville/Duval County is required every three years to adopt an inventory list of all real property within the city to which the City/County holds fee simple title that is appropriate for use as potential affordable housing. City ordinance 2023-308-E approves and adopts an inventory list of all real property within the City of Jacksonville to which the City holds fee simple title that is appropriate for use as potential affordable housing; declares the parcels listed on the Affordable Housing Inventory List to be surplus to the needs of the City; and authorizes the sale of the parcels.
Pursuant to Chapter 122, Ordinance Code, the properties on the affordable housing list may be donated on a first come-first served basis with a restriction that requires the development of the property as permanent affordable housing within 24 months after the donation as evidenced by receipt of a certificate of occupancy.
"Affordable housing" is housing that is affordable by a person or family whose then-current family income does not exceed 140% of the then-current area median gross income for the City of Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida.
As of September 12, 2023, the Application Cycle for the 2023 Surplus Property Donation Program is closed and we are no longer accepting applications at this time.
All questions about the program must be emailed to HCDDsurplus@coj.net.
