Miami-Dade County Dot Palm Tree

Welcome to the new version of Miami-Dade County's website. We'd love your feedback. While we're at work, you may be directed to, which is still your primary source for information.

Request Public Records from Public Housing and Community Development

Public Housing and Community Development's (PHCD) records are available to inspect or copy. We will make every effort to expedite public records requests. However, depending on the size, complexity and location of records, it may take up to 30 days to process.

A request may be made by mail, fax, email or telephone. In order to expedite your request, please provide specific details that will assist us in gathering the information for your request. Prior to completing the request, PHCD will provide the requestor with an estimate for approval.

Confidential information will be redacted and kept from inspecting and copying. Although Florida Statues permit the release of certain types of client information, the federal government does not, based on the 2015-16 U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Privacy Protection Guidance for Third Parties.
