Safe Neighborhood Improvement Districts (Support)

Safe Neighborhood Improvement Districts (Support)

HB 1407 (Williams), CS/SB 1814 (Simmons) and HB 1405 (Williams) are comprehensive bills creating a Safe Neighborhood Improvement District Revolving Loan Trust Fund within the Department of Legal Affairs. The money in the trust fund is to be used to provide loans to a Safe Neighborhood Improvement District for crime prevention projects. The bills provide guidelines that must be met before a loan can be approved and require the district to submit an annual report to the Florida Legislature. 

CS/SB 1814 was amended in committee to update the guidelines for appointing a special neighborhood improvement district board. (Branch)
