Housing Choice Voucher

Washington State's PHAs, Department of Children, Youth, and Families Sign Agreeement to Provide to Over 2,100 Housing Vouchers for Child Welfare-Involved Families, Foster Youth


Over 1,500 child welfare-involved families and 600 eligible foster youth across Washington State will now have access to much-needed housing assistance thanks to a historic agreement between the Department of Children, Youth, and Families and a network of public housing authorities and housing non-profits. The housing network pledged 2,167 federal housing vouchers and apartment units for families and youth involved with the child welfare system.

Seattle Housing Authority receives more than $1 million from HUD to build on its success in creating greater housing opportunity for families with young children


From the Seattle Housing Authority's press release:

The Seattle Housing Authority has been awarded $1,075,200 by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to expand neighborhood choices for more families with young children being served by SHA. SHA has designed a suite of services that increase the ability of these families with vouchers to rent in neighborhoods which have proven to result in improved academic achievement, health, income and other life outcomes for the children in low-income families as they grow into adults.
