Rollins Philanthropy Center
Monthly committee meeting
Rent has gone up in Orlando 18.8% since January of 2021, and a recent study published by Smartest dollars says that residents need to earn more than $23 per hour to afford a 1-bedroom apartment.
The Affordable Housing shortage in Orange County is at an all-time high and is a health and humanitarian crisis. According to a recent article in the Orlando Business Journal, there is a 91,000-unit affordable housing shortage among metro Orlando’s residents who earn 50% or less of the area’s median income of $48,511.
September’s Hot Topics will address how businesses and government agencies can address the Affordable Housing Crisis in Orange County, which has been worsened due to Covid and the pending end of the CDC’s eviction moratorium.

Let's put the brakes on Climate Change!
Dr. Penelope Canan will present a proposal to focus on four types of "Super, Short-Lived" Climate Pollutants. (SLCP)
Increasingly frequent extreme climate events worldwide (heat, fires, floods, droughts, famines) plus available federal financing for global warming "solutions," means that communities will be faced with many proposals for short-term and long-range "climate programs." How can citizens participate in evaluating various options suited to their localities? How would we go about determining next steps? Communities vary in the nature of the super pollutants they face, so opportunities for citizen input abound, especially if they match regional options.
Dr. Canan will present a proposal to focus on four types of "Super, Short-Lived" Climate Pollutants (SLCP), as recommended by Miller, Zaelke & Andersen in their recent book, Cut Super Climate Pollutants Now!. (These are: methane, black carbon, tropospheric ozone, and hydrogenated compounds.) SLCPs are SUPER pollutants (relatively the most powerful) and have the shortest life span.The logic is to get the most bang for the buck and buy ten years that may avoid dangerous "tipping points" and feedback loops.
The authors propose joining, combining, and strengthening multilateral agreements already operating within each category. Importantly, they suggest that all agreements, old or new, be modeled after the "Start and Strengthen" approach of the Montreal Protocol on Ozone Layer Protection, "the most successful environmental treaty in history."
Penelope hopes for lively discussion of the basics of the proposal and concrete suggestions for LWV next steps in Florida.
