Affordable Housing

Goals include increased access to low-income and affordable housing that do not promote improvements that ultimately displace current residents, ongoing support of the Duwamish Valley Affordable Housing Coalition, and promotion of affordable commercial spaces, equitable development, and anti-displacement.

Community Supportive Space

Duwamish Valley Affordable Housing Coalition

This last year, the Office of Planning & Community Development (OPCD) secured $500,000 to support the ongoing work of Duwamish Valley Affordable Housing Coalition. In particular, the money was used to support the conceptual design of a multi-purpose building on the Unity Electric Site, which is part of the Resilience District work. This multi-purpose building would support affordable community-supportive nonprofit spaces.

2021 Progress

The Office of Housing entered into a purchase and sale agreement on two adjacent properties in South Park. They expect to complete the acquisition in the first half of 2022.
