The Front Porch Florida Initiative was created in 1999 as a means to rebuild distressed communities. Front Porch Florida takes up this challenge to revitalize underserved communities that are dedicated to positive cooperation and communication to make their community a better place to live, work, and play.
As a part of the initiative, the Front Porch Communities are provided the educational and technical assistance to help residents plan and implement projects that will make long-term changes. Throughout the process, the communities can be reassured that the Office of Urban Opportunity is committed to their success and will help them form long term relationship with public and private partners, provide technical assistance and guidance, and whatever means possible to ensure that the communities find the resources they need and complete the goals they have presented to the residents and stakeholders.
Front Porch Florida is not funded for the current 2012-2013 state fiscal year.
