Mr. Milo’s passion for helping advance South Florida’s underserved affordable

revitalizing communities by creating affordable home ownership opportunities and

has developed, rehabilitated and managed over 1,300 public, affordable, and
workforce housing units with financing obtained through tax-exempt bonds and low
income housing tax credits.
In 2011, RUDG was awarded the exclusive development rights to preserve and
redevelop 11 Miami-Dade County public housing projects. In 2015, RUDG completed
six of those developments and commenced the redevelopment of four additional
projects in partnership with Miami-Dade County.
