We led or supported six housing action plans in Washington cities to improve housing affordability and supply and prevent displacement of vulnerable populations. These plans included substantial outreach to stakeholder groups including renters, homeowners, builders, and BIPOC communities. Each plan included a suite of strategies to achieve community supported goals for housing and was adopted by local city councils prior to the state-enforced summer 2021 deadline. These plans drew upon the state Housing Action Plan Guidance, which we helped to produce.
- Engaged wide range of stakeholders involved in housing issues
- Adopted housing action plans in cities across the state.
