The Florida Apartment Association is a federation of associations representing and advocating the interests of the Florida multifamily rental housing industry.

Since 1971, the Florida Apartment Association has worked to ensure high property management standards and resident satisfaction and safety in Florida. Volunteer leaders from throughout the state meet quarterly to discuss issues and challenges facing the multifamily housing sector.

As a federation, FAA serves as an umbrella organization linking 11 independent local associations. The FAA and the local associations also provide professional development, networking, and other opportunities for multifamily housing professionals.

FAA represents more than 415,000 apartment homes in Florida. Constituencies include apartment communities new and old, urban and rural, luxury and affordable, privately developed and state tax-assisted, large management companies and small individual owners, assisted living facilities for seniors and corporate housing for busy businesspeople. FAA does not represent condominiums, hotels, motels, and other transient housing. In addition, it is purely a voluntary organization: Not all apartment owners, particularly small individual owners and geographical areas remote from the main city centers, are members of FAA.

Local associations have their own independent boards of directors and activities. FAA and each local association also belong to the National Apartment Association.
