Webinar: NLIHC Ensuring Equitable ERA Programs

Rental assistance continues to flow into cities across King County. Swiftly directing these resources to households who’ve been most impacted by the housing crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic must remain a priority. Join NLIHC on Wednesday for an update on ERA guidance and hear about the strategies being effectively used across the U.S. to deploy funds to those most in need.

The City of Auburn is hosting two online community meetings to present draft recommendations for the city’s first Housing Action Plan:

Please use the links above to register to attend either of the meetings. Each meeting will be the same.


The City proposes to rezone one parcel of land located at 16357 Aurora Avenue N from R-48 and R-18 to MB. There is currently an enhanced shelter operating on the site.

The property owner intends to utilize the parcel for an Enhanced Shelter, a type of homeless shelter, and redevelop the property for permanent supportive multi-family housing after that. Rezoning to MB would allow for a variety of more intense residential and commercial uses not currently permitted in the R-48 zoning district.
