Vets & Human Services Levy: Renew it, expand it, and increase support for affordable homes!

March 24th, 2017

The King County Veterans and Human Services Levy (VHSL) has for over a decade funded critical health and housing services to our neighbors who need them most. The levy is set to expire at the end of this year, potentially placing many services at risk during a time of uncertainty around state and federal dollars.

In light of this uncertainty and continuing need in our region, the renewal and expansion of the VHSL is imperative. Join us in voicing your support for a renewed and significantly expanded levy with a robust affordable housing component!
