EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


The purpose of this Annual Report is to describe the highlights of the teaching, research,
and service activities of the Shimberg Center for Housing Studies during the past year. A
separate administrative section is presented that describes the Shimberg Center team members
and the funding for the Center. An Appendix is included listing the various publications that
have been produced independently by the Center.
Three major areas of activity have dominated the Center's activities:
Continued provision of expert housing policy and program assistance to Florida's local
governments, nonprofit and for-profit housing organizations, and the public through the
activities of the Center's Housing Policy and Program Team.
Continued development and enhancement of the Florida Housing Data Clearinghouse
that has come to serve Florida's legislative leadership as well as the cities and counties
across the state.
Preparation and publication of the State ofFlorida's Housing -2008 with support
provided by the Florida Association of REALTORS.
The Shimberg Center operated with a staff of sixteen in 2007-2008 including students
pursuing doctoral degrees and three pursuing masters degrees. Dr. Anne R. Williamson, the
Shimberg Center's associate director and leader of the Housing Policy & Programs Team,
created the first post-doctoral fellowship in housing policy within the College of Design,
Construction, and Planning at the University of Florida in July 2008. The first incumbent is Dr.
Abdellatif Quamhieh, who earned his Ph.D. in Urban and Regional Planning from the University
of Florida in August 2007. Dr. Quamheih is collaborating with Dr. Williamson on research
related to housing and crime, as well as on publishing from his original dissertation research on
post-disaster housing.
Support for the staff came from the University $287,282 plus a combination of funds
from foundations, the Center's endowments, and contracted research for a total operating budget
of $1,156,818. Dr. Robert C. Stroh, Sr., continues serving as director of the Shimberg Center
with Dr. Anne R. Williamson and William J. O'Dell serving as associate directors.












INTRODUCTION


The 1988 legislative initiative that established the Shimberg Center for Affordable
Housing envisioned a multi-disciplinary organization capable of addressing a broad range of
housing and community development topics. In order to respond to this charge, the Shimberg
Center has focused its effort in five housing-related areas: Housing Technology, Florida Housing
Data Clearinghouse, Housing Policy & Programs, Teaching, and Service.

HOUSING TECHNOLOGY

Energy Characteristics of New Homes in Florida
Since February 2001, the Shimberg Center has received and processed the Energy Code
Compliance Forms from every permit-issuing jurisdiction in Florida. A five percent random
sample of the forms describing newly constructed single-family and multi-family residential
buildings is drawn. As a result, the Center is able to publish periodic reports summarizing the
energy conserving characteristics of new homes in Florida. These periodic reports illustrate
changes over time as well as by major climatic region of the state. The most recent report is
dated May 2008 and is titled Energy Conserving Features of New Homes in Florida 2003-2007.
This and other publications of the Center are available on the Internet at www.shimberg.ufl.edu.



HOUSING POLICY & PROGRAMS


The Oaks at Riverview HOPE VI Evaluation

The Shimberg Center's Housing Policy and Programs research team finalized its
evaluation of The Oaks at Riverview, a HOPE VI redevelopment effort in Tampa. The Oaks at
Riverview is a redevelopment of the site formerly occupied by distressed public housing
complexes known as Riverview Terrace and Tom Dyer Homes. The Oaks is located in the
historic Seminole Heights neighborhood, and the redevelopment effort has made a significant
contribution to rising home values and reduction in crime rates in the surrounding area.











Dr. Anne R. Williamson, associate director of the Shimberg Center and leader of the
Housing Policy and Programs research team, presented the results of this evaluation to the
Tampa Housing Authority's Board of Commissioners in May, 2008. She continues to serve as an
expert resource to the housing authority as it moves to redevelop the former site of Central Park
Village near downtown Tampa into a vibrant, mixed-income, mixed-use neighborhood to be
known as The Encore District.


Hillsborough County Affordable Housing Advisory Board
The Housing Policy and Programs team is under contract to provide expert assistance to
Hillsborough County's Affordable Housing Advisory Board. Assistance to date has included
review of the County's plan for implementing the federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program.
This program will provide Hillsborough County with an estimated $19.1 to be spent over an 18-
month period on preventing and remediating the negative impact of foreclosures on key
neighborhoods in the county. Other assistance includes technical support at monthly Advisory
Board meetings and as important issues in housing policy and program administration arise.


Polk County Housing Needs Assessment
This project resulted in an analytical report for Polk County, including information
connecting unmet housing need with various income levels within this high-growth Florida
County. Dr. Anne R. Williamson presented this report before Polk's Board of County
Commissioners in May 2009 and provided guidance to County management and staff on how the
results could be used for effective planning and administration efforts.


University Area Community Development Corporation Anti-Crime Programming
The Housing Policy and Programs team began its fifth year of service to the University
Area Community Development Corporation in July 2008. These services will extend through
June 2009, and continue to focus on the linkages between crimes and housing condition.
Information provided by the Housing Policy and Programs team is a regular part of planning and
administrative efforts by the UACDC and its partners as they work to revitalize the severely
distressed area near the University of South Florida.











FLORIDA HOUSING DATA CLEARINGHOUSE


The Florida Housing Data Clearinghouse (Clearinghouse) provides a single starting point
for free, publicly available housing data and related information for Florida. The data available
from the Clearinghouse helps policy makers make informed housing decisions and expedites the
day-to-day work of state and local housing planners, legislative and state agency staff, program
managers, advocates and the interested public. The Clearinghouse is one of only a few state-
level, housing data intermediaries in the country and one of the most comprehensive in the data it
offers to the public.
The Clearinghouse was founded in response to the Affordable Housing Study
Commission's call for a central, public repository of housing data of importance to the state of
Florida. In 2000, the Study Commission convened a workgroup of stakeholders to consider this
proposal. The stakeholders, including representatives from the Study Commission, Florida
Housing Finance Corporation, local governments, regional entities and state agencies, housing
advocates such as the Florida Housing Coalition, groups such as the Florida Home Builders
Association and the Florida Association of Realtors, formally recommended to the Florida
Housing Finance Corporation the establishment of a housing data clearinghouse. Much of what
was written eight years ago in the original proposal to fund the Clearinghouse remains just as
true today... "Reliable, comprehensive data informs housing policy and planning decisions at all
levels of Florida's housing delivery system: state agencies, local governments, and nonprofit and
for-profit organizations throughout the state. To meet the affordable housing needs of Florida's
residents, we must first plan appropriately, then regularly measure and evaluate our progress.
The foundation of this planning and evaluation is housing data."
The responsibilities of the Florida Housing Data Clearinghouse include:
Creating a data "warehouse" to store data for use by the public;
Designing a website which allows for user-friendly access to housing data;
Promoting standard formats to collect and share local housing data;
Preparing the Affordable Housing Needs Assessment;
Preparing an annual report on the "State of Florida's Housing" to provide perspective
on trends and conditions in housing at the state, regional, and local level;











Development of the triennial Rental Market Study for the Florida Housing Finance
Corporation;
Creating an integrated database of federal, state, and local assisted housing data.


The Clearinghouse is a jointly funded project between the Florida Housing Finance Corporation
and the Shimberg Center. Fiscal Year 2008/09 was the Clearinghouse's eighth contract year
with the Florida Housing Finance Corporation. In February, the Clearinghouse was named one
of Planetizen's Top 10 Web Sites for 2008 in planning and development:
Founded in 2000, the Florida Housing Data Clearinghouse's website is a great example
for agencies who want to provide easy access to relevant data and statistics.... Users can
find population g ,i ,n th projections, new construction and sales data, and housing and
wage trends n i/h well designed data access tools that allow comparisons by jurisdiction
Shandy for planners looking to measure up to the town down the road -From
www.planetizen.com, Web site awards announcement



Preservation of Affordable, Multi-family Housing
During 2008, the Clearinghouse remained active in the state's evolving interest in
preservation of its multi-family, affordable housing inventory. Among preservation-related
accomplishments this year the Clearinghouse made extensive preservation-related additions to its
general inventory of assisted housing; submitted, in partnership with the Florida Housing
Finance Corporation and the Florida Housing Coalition, a proposal to the MacArthur Foundation
State and Local Housing Preservation Leaders initiative (the Clearinghouse was one of the semi-
finalists); completed work on a $172,000 grant from the MacArthur Foundation (in partnership
with Florida Housing Finance) to continue expanding capacity in the Clearinghouse to deliver
useful information for this extremely important affordable housing policy initiative; in
partnership with the National Low Income Housing Coalition created a state-wide network of
project monitors for the assisted housing inventory; made several presentations to various groups
about Clearinghouse preservation data work, and provided considerable technical assistance to
individuals and organizations using the information.











Affordable Housing Suitability Project
A $500,000 gift from the Wachovia Foundation to the University of Florida College of
Design, Construction and Planning is providing an opportunity for researchers to address a
component of the state's affordable housing concerns by identifying and assessing the suitability
of sites for affordable housing development or preservation.
The three-year grant, begun in September 2007, supports an interdisciplinary research
project in the college between the Department of Urban and Regional Planning and the Shimberg
Center for Affordable Housing, located in the Rinker School of Building Construction
Wachovia's funding of this project allows integration of the expertise of the Shimberg
Center, the research and knowledge of the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, and the
cutting-edge spatial analysis available through the department's GeoPlan Center.




TEACHING


Despite the downturn in the housing market, Dr. Anne R. Williamson's graduate course in
Housing Economics & Policy (BCN 6756) served a record 28 students in Spring 2008. Among
other course requirements, students completed an extensive professional report linking classroom
material with real-world development opportunities.
In addition to the graduate-level course in Housing Economics and Policy, the faculty has
teamed with faculty from the Rinker School of Building Construction to offer a required
graduate course titled BCN 6036 Research Methods in Building Construction. The purpose of
this course is to introduce beginning graduate students to the task of preparing a dissertation,
thesis, or master's paper. It also provides a review of basic statistical methods that many of the
graduate students will need in conducting their research.
The Shimberg Center is called upon by many organizations and communities to
participate in working groups, to speak on issues related to the delivery of affordable housing, or
to serve as an information resource and referral center. These requests for assistance span a
range of topics such as building technology, building regulations, land development, financing,
consumer education, and more. Responding appropriately to these requests is an important












function of the Center in its efforts to encourage and facilitate the production of affordable
housing throughout Florida.

ADMINISTRATION

Financial

The funds that support the Shimberg Center's activities come primarily from three sources: 1)
university funds, 2) endowment earnings, and 3) research contracts and grants. During the fiscal
year ending 30 June 2008, the Shimberg Center for Housing Studies received $287,282 for
salaries & benefits, for other expenses, and for other personnel services from the University of
Florida. The distribution of these funds by expense category for FY 2004 through FY 2007 is
shown below.











The annual earnings from the endowments that are administered by the University of Florida
Foundation for the Shimberg Center provide another $88,721 for the support of faculty and
graduate research assistants plus approximately $8,620 per year for discretionary uses. The
Center's two major endowments are:
Ida Rogero Childre Fellowship/Assistantship in Affordable Housing
James H. Shimberg Professorships/Fellowships Endowment & Discretionary Endowment
The other sources of funding for the Center are contract and grant supported activities. In FY
2008 the total contract and grant awards received from state and local agencies, from private
corporations, and from foundations came to $761,995. This total includes major projects that
began in the last quarter of 2007 and continued beyond mid 2008. Combining this funded
research with the FY 2008 University support and the support from UF Foundation endowments
brought the total operating budget to $1,156,818. This total represents a leverage of 4.0:1 for the
support provided by the University.
