Take Action

Working together, HDC advocates have ensured that affordable housing is a priority for cities in King County. We’ve helped secure funding for thousands of affordable homes, tenant protections for many of our most vulnerable neighbors, and helped cities implement policies to keep their communities healthy and inclusive.

Through continued advocacy we can ensure that everyone in King County has a safe, healthy, and affordable place to call home.

Renton Rental Licensing and Inspection Program

The proactive Rental Licensing and Inspection Program will create an accountability for the city and landlords to ensure everyone is living in a safe and healthy home. We want the Council to vote to adopt the program that will help ensure healthy housing standards for Renton residents of all income levels. To do that we want to send as many messages, telling Council that Renton needs this program.

End the Government Shutdown

The partial government shutdown is impacting the thousands of people who rely on federal programs like section 8 vouchers and other affordable housing programs. The longer the shutdown continues, the greater the harm, the harder to reverse its impact on low-income people, veterans, seniors, and many others. Call your legislators now, and tell them to end this shutdown!
