Affordable Housing Week
What is Affordable Housing Week?
The 8th Annual Affordable Housing Week is a series of education and advocacy events that highlight the role affordable housing plays in stabilizing our communities. Each year, HDC and our partners bring together elected officials, city/county staff, advocates and King County residents to create momentum for investments and policies to ensure affordable, thriving and equitable communities.
Why Affordable Housing Week?
King County’s exacerbated need for affordable housing is a regional problem and impacts all municipalities. This Affordable Housing Week, we hope to ignite an unprecedented investment in affordable housing across our region. This is an opportunity to urge cities across King County to adopt new and effective strategies that address our urgent affordable housing needs.
