Landlord Liaison Project
As of July 1, 2017, King County is serving as the interim operator of the Landlord Liaison Project (LLP) and will provide services to existing partners.
Current Property Management Partners, LLP Clients and Service Providers
Eviction prevention, rental assistance and risk mitigation funds are still available to partnering property managers of LLP for enrolled clients. Risk reduction funds and eviction prevention support will be available to partner landlords based on initial client lease dates as specified below:
- For clients with initial lease dates between 7/1/2015 – 12/31/2016, these supports will continue for two years following lease date.
- For clients with initial lease dates between 1/1/2017 – 6/30/2017, these supports will continue for 18 months following lease date.
The Landlord Liaison Project (LLP) is a collaborative partnership between property managers and service providers that helps people leave homelessness and succeed in private market and nonprofit housing. LLP serves households who are able to pay rent, but have barriers to accessing housing.
LLP has housed more than 7,000 women, men, and children in King County since the program launched in 2009. LLP is funded by King County, the Seattle Office of Housing and the United Way of King County.
LLP Moving Forward
King County, United Way of King County and the City of Seattle are continuing efforts to initiate a new program that supports property owners/managers to help address homelessness by housing individuals and families. We will update you as we have additional information and would appreciate your feedback as we continue this work. If you have thoughts about how this long-term program should operate, please contact Robin Koskey at Robin.Koskey@seattle.gov.
